As the punters in the Transfer Tavern gear up for a huge summer of activity, Manchester United appear to be the headline grabbers at this burgeoning stage.
With Jose Mourinho through the door and Zlatan Ibrahimovic reportedly on the way, the Red Devils are claimed to be closing in on a sensational €40m deal to bring Villarreal defender Eric Baily to the Theatre of Dreams.
According to reports in Spanish outlet AS, the Manchester giants are ready to seal a deal for the Ivorian central defender as the self-proclaimed ‘Special One’ aims to bring in a suitable replacement for Chris Smalling.
Though Daley Blind has proved a stalwart in recent seasons, the Dutchman is thought to be one of the stars not fancied by the 53-year old upon his arrival.
It is quite the rise for the 22-year old, who only joined the Yellow Submarine from Espanyol last summer for around €5.2m.
The report claims he will now thrash out a deal with movers, shakers and decision at United after the two clubs agreed a sensational fee.
