News arrived in the Football Transfer Tavern this evening that caused pints to be downed and interest to be distracted towards one journalist who had entered the bar.
Jamie Jackson from The Guardian gathered a group of punters around the fruit machine to claim that Manchester United could return for Athletic Bilbao midfielder Ander Herrea in the January transfer window.
With the Red Devils currently a massive 12 points off league leaders Arsenal, Jackson explains that this could be a last throw of the dice by the former Everton boss he tries to strengthen his midfield.
Of course, punters in the tavern remember that United attempted to prise the 24-year-old from Bilbao on transfer deadline day of the summer transfer window. But after thinking the deal was completed, it actually emerged that United were unwilling to meet his £36 million buyout clause and instead he remained with the La Liga club.
The farce of the summer could soon be forgotten if Moyes and executive vice-chairman can have success in this pursuit during the upcoming transfer window.
Summer was regarded as a huge failure by United supporters in the tavern as only Marouane Fellaini arrived in a £27.5 million deal.
The Belgian midfielder has underwhelmed so far at Old Trafford and could force the club back into a deal for the highly-rated Spaniard.
Can United have more luck this round for the Bilbao star? Let us know your thoughts below.
