The arrival of Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho in Manchester has created a truly blockbuster feeling in the city, with both United and City touted for a major overhaul this summer.
Excitement amongst the punters in the Transfer Tavern is palpable, with many of our locals dreaming with wide eyed wonderment about the future.
Perennial rivals, the pair are due to resume the colossal battles they waged in Spain at the summit of the Premier League.
Now, according to the Guardian , the Spaniard is set to draw first blood in the battle, as he aims to lure a member of the United squad to his Etihad revolution.
It is understood that the former Barcelona coach is eyeing a move for Victor Valdes, who has endured a torrid time of things since leaving the Blaugrana himself.
He fell out with Louis van Gaal at Old Trafford and was left out of the club’s squads for both the Premier League and Champions League competition.
The World Cup winner emerged as one of the finest custodians in the game under Guardiola’s stewardship at the Camp Nou and is thought to be a target of his once more.
Who will enjoy a better season – Guardiola or Mourinho?
