Manchester United

Man United absolutely must consider swoop for £18m-rated Albanian this summer

The Manchester United fans in and around the Transfer Tavern are disappointed to have seen the gulf in class between them and their rivals Manchester City, something they’re desperate to amend next season. 

United were strong favourites for the title early on and their form certainly justified it, sweeping past any opposition in their way. Then came the stumbling block, their form took a drastic turn and the excellence of Man City saw them accelerate past sorry United.

The Red Devils would be correct to forget about this season and move onto next with some newly acquired players to strengthen the side. Our punters would like to see a player arrive who has the potential to surpass Antonio Valencia at right-back, someone in the form of Napoli’s Elseid Hysaj, who is valued at £18.00 million on Transfermarkt. The 24-year-old continues to be a regular for the Italian outfit, playing in a total of 43 games so far this season.

Now with their title race hotting up, Hysaj will continue to play a big part in keeping the Napoli defence tight and compact, something the Albanian is particularly good at.

Antonio Valencia has been and still is a terrific servant for Man United but considering that the right-back isn’t getting any younger, this summer could be the perfect time to scout out and buy a replacement.

Landlord’s verdict: 

Elseid Hysaj is a brilliant right-back with a lot of defensive qualities compared to the normal modern-day wing back. Capable of getting up and down still, Hysaj is still just 24-years-old and could be United’s right-back for years to come.
