Man United reportedly keen on summer transfer swoop for African powerhouse

Manchester United fans here in the Tavern are hoping to see midfield additions in the summer transfer window, after witnessing some lacklustre performances so far this season. 

The Red Devils were hoping to challenge for their first Premier League title since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement, but they came up short once again after seeing rivals Manchester City produce an unassailable lead at the top of the table. Although, many supporters believe that some of their current problems are down to a lack of consistency in the midfield, with Paul Pogba still yet to live up to the world-record fee that was paid for his services. But, it appears that United are already weighing up a possible summer replacement, as according to reports in the Mail Online, Manchester United are firm admirers of Tottenham’s Victor Wanyama.

The Red Devils have taken note in recent weeks that Wanyama has been used sparingly since returning from injury, as the Kenyan continues to appear as a substitute for Tottenham Hotspur. Indeed, that’s something that could make it rather easy for United to bring him to Old Trafford in the summer, with many of our local residents desperate to see him in the red shirt.

However, they do face stiff competition from Liverpool to land the services of the 26-year-old, as they also share an admiration for Wanyama and believe that he may be willing to leave North London. But, it’s United’s desire for the addition of a central midfielder that could see them put all their efforts into bringing him to Manchester, with his last Spurs goal against bitter rivals Liverpool being a fond memory for many local Mancunians.

Landlord’s Verdict:

Victor Wanyama would be a terrific signing for the Red Devils, as the powerhouse in the midfield to take over from the underperforming Paul Pogba. Although, they do face stiff competition from Liverpool to secure the signature of the Kenyan, something that could be put entirely down to the player’s own preference.
