The Daily Star have managed to get Manchester Untied fans crowding around the bar looking seriously bemused here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they report that Joao Miranda is undergoing a medical with Inter Milan.
Now as one of our punters notes over a pint, the Brazilian is one of the best defenders in Europe and while we can understand why he felt the need to leave Atletico Madrid and further his career, there is no denying this is a massive step backwards.
Inter Milan – and AC for that matter – are not the clubs they once were and we think that any player of Miranda’s class should certainly be looking to make a step up in his career and not the step back that joining the Serie A side will represent.
Manchester United fans. Has the player made a massive mistake with this? Should you have tried harder to land him? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
