Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern are pleased with their sides transfer activity this summer but disagree with Jose Mourinho’s assessment that a further addition is needed in one particular area.
The Red Devils have spent heavily to bring Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic and Victor Lindelof to the club but Mourinho is intent on splashing the cash once again to bring Ivan Perisic in from Inter Milan, a signing that would prove to be costly.
Mourinho is a big fan of Perisic but the arrival of the Croatian ace would leave huge question marks hanging over the head of young players within the squad, as the signing would likely lead to less opportunities for Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.
French ace Martial struggled to build upon his successful first season in the Premier League and didn’t find too many opportunities coming his way from Mourinho last summer, though that needs to change this year as he can be a huge asset.
Martial can certainly be as good as Perisic would be at Manchester United and the punters in the bar believe their Portuguese boss has to show increased faith in the youngsters at his disposal if he is to be a lasting success at Old Trafford, especially when they’re as talented as Martial.
If Manchester United were to ignore Martial, our landlord believes they could end up losing his services later down the line and he feels that’s something they would come to regret.
