Manchester United fans here inside the Football Transfer Tavern don’t really know what to make of what they have just read in Metro – with the publication claiming that the Red Devils are ready to sign Sevilla striker Carlos Bacca in the summer.
United boss Louis van Gaal is currently identifying players he can sign to replace Robin van Persie, who looks set to depart Old Trafford this summer.
The 28-year-old has been in superb form for the La Liga outfit this season, amassing an impressive 21 goals thus far this campaign.
As our landlord quips whilst pouring a pint, there is no denying Bacca can score goals but the real issue is whether he can rekindle this type of form in the top-flight of English football.
United fans over by the dartboard here in the Tavern feel that Bacca is simply too old, with virtually all of them agreeing they need to be signing established, world-class players.
