Manchester United supporting punters here inside the Football Transfer Tavern nearly choked on their peanuts when they saw the news from Metro (Via Don Balon) – with the publication suggesting that the Red Devils are weighing up a whopping £49.7 million deal for Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben.
Our landlord here in the Transfer Tavern simply cannot believe this news, and cannot envisage seeing the Dutchman ply his trade at Old Trafford, and can’t see United forking out that sort of money for the winger!
A couple of United fans enjoying a pint of the Transfer Tavern’s finest ale say that Robben is still one of the best midfielders in the world, and feel that if Van Gaal can lure him to Old Trafford, they would undoubtedly become serious contenders for the Premier League title once again.
The publication suggests that Van Gaal is keen to link up with Robben again in the new year, and it has made a number of our regular Manchester United fans very, very excited!
However, our landlord, ever the pessimist, has put a bet on saying that Robben will 100% not be a Manchester United player anytime soon!
United fans….. What do you make of this? Would you like to see Robben at United? Let us know below!
