Man United ready to rival Barcelona in big defender battle

There’s nothing quite like a transfer tidbit to calm the nerves before a major derby and the Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern have felt that this evening. 

With the Red Devils’ trip to Liverpool merely a few hours away, reports emanating out of Spain have helped some of the United supporting locals take their mind off it.

According to MarcaJose Mourinho is ready to battle Barcelona over the signing of Valencia defender Joao Cancelo.

The recently-capped Portuguese international has been in impressive form for Los Che of late and the La Liga champions are thought to be keen on him.

With Alex Vidal reportedly likely to leave the Blaugrana, those at the Camp Nou are understood to view the 22-year-old as a long-term right-back.

However, that berth has also proved a problem for the Premier League titans, who’ve struggled to truly replace Gary Neville.

Though Antonio Valencia is currently first-choice, the future of Matteo Darmian remains in doubt.

Despite Barca’s standing as one of the most illustrious clubs in Europe, the financial might of the Premier League could change the playing field somewhat.

Should United stick with Valencia? How badly do they need a top right-back? Let us know below…
