Our Manchester United fans here in the Transfer Tavern are confident that Jose Mourinho is going to deliver their first Premier League title since 2013 this season.
Since that league win, United have, of course, been really out of sorts but they do seem to be getting back into winning ways – even if their league finish was below par last season.
For sure, getting that winning mentality back is part of Mourinho’s agenda at the club and it does appear to be returning though there is still time to go.
The club’s latest signing, should it go through, should add to that, then, with Nemanja Matic linked to the club.
However, there are issues currently with The Sun claiming that the midfielder’s club Chelsea and United cannot agree on bonus clauses on top of the initial transfer fee.
That, then, is holding up the move but there is time to resolve it so United fans may not need to worry just yet as we head towards the start of the new season.
Matic seems to be one of the most typical Mourinho players you can find.
Strong, powerful and a will to win, Matic would instill real steel into United’s midfield alongside the style of the likes of Paul Pogba.
The deal may be held up for now, of course, but it’s surely going to go through soon enough and that will make United’s spine look even stronger.
Thoughts, United fans? Let us know below!
