Our Manchester United fans here in the Transfer Tavern are feeling happier than they thought they might be at this point in the season and things may only get better.
After a few struggles in recent months the club look to have found a system that works and it appears, according to Portuguese outlet Record, that they are looking to add to it with right back Nelson Semedo and have opened talks.
United currently have Antonio Valencia as their first choice right back but he is going unchallenged in the squad right now and that could cause complacency on his part.
The key to success, as the Red Devils and Mourinho well know, is having a competitive squad and so that appears to be the aim with the young Benfica defender.
He is a more orthodox option in that area than the former Wigan Athletic man and has scored two goals as well as provided four assists in all competitions this year.
Our landlord thinks he’d be a top signing, too. He’s got power and pace and will only get better with him in his early 20’s.
Would you take Semedo, United fans? Let us know below!
