Manchester United fans here in the Tavern are fully expecting a big summer clear-out in order to recoup as much money to save towards the bigger and better players in the game.
The Red Devils have had a good season thus far but to make it even better next year, then they’re going to need to spend big again to challenge more in the top competitions.
One player in the Premier League who may be of interest to United is Abdoulaye Doucoure; who is valued at £10.80 million on Transfermarkt. The ever-reliable Michael Carrick is nearing the end of his playing days and it seems Man United are willing to let Marouane Fellaini leave at the end of this season.
Doucoure has been the energy in the Watford team and has proven to be one of the biggest unsung heroes this season. He has played in all but one Premier League games this year and within that time added 7 goals and set up his team-mates to score on 3 different occasions. The Frenchman isn’t the typical big-name Manchester United player but based on his wonderful performances presented to fans this season, there isn’t a reason to suggest otherwise that he can’t be a top top player.
He is already being tracked by a number of rivals including Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham but the lure of playing at Old Trafford and following the years of greats who have played at this ground before may turn Abdoulaye Doucoure’s head towards the Red Devils.
Indeed, perhaps he’d even bring out the best in Paul Pogba.
The landlord here is a big United fan himself and what he’s seen of Doucoure has made him think that he would be the perfect addition at United, a big strong runner in midfield who has the ability to assist changing defence into attack. Alongside Matic and Pogba could be the making of a formidable midfield trio.
