After a relatively disappointing Premier League campaign, the Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern really are very excited for a huge summer of activity.
Naturally, the resident Red Devils have seen their club linked with huge names already, though one of the latest transfer reports from Sky Sports have centred around a star already plying his trade at Old Trafford.
United have reportedly snubbed a £60m bid from Real Madrid for show-stopping-shot-stopper David De Gea, despite it being a world record fee for a ‘keeper. The Spaniard – one of the best in the world – has long been linked with a move to the Spanish capital, ever since a failed move in 2015.
Los Blancos are said to have submitted an offer, though those at Old Trafford are believed to have rejected it out of hand. That’s gone down a storm amongst our drinkers, who believe keeping the 26-year-old in Manchester is key to their chances of competing next summer.
