The Manchester United fans in and around the Transfer Tavern are hoping success will soon return to Old Trafford after Jose Mourinho experienced a season of no trophies last campaign.
Everyone already knows to expect a lot of transfer activity in and out of Old Trafford this summer, with Jose Mourinho hopeful of doing enough to get his side back on track to pick up some silverware by this time next season. Our punters are well aware that Marouane Fellaini is set for an exit soon given that he’s yet to renew his contract, so what better replacement is there than Russian star Aleksandr Golovin, who is valued at £9 million on Transfer Markt.
The central-midfielder has again been a terrific player for CSKA Moscow this season because in his 43 total appearances, Golovin has scored 7 times as well as assisted his team-mates for 6 goals.
Having starred in their fixture against United rivals Arsenal this season, scoring and assisting in the two-legged tie, and obviously, when CSKA played Man United in the Champions League, it was clear to see on both occasions that the 22-year-old has incredible talent.
The dead-ball specialist can play as an attacking midfielder or even a winger compared to his normal central-midfield role, with those positions appealing to United because of their need to strengthen this summer.
Golovin isn’t afraid to shoot from anywhere, his passing and dribbling are both sensational and he has sufficient pace to get up and down the pitch.
Man United would massively improve their tenacity in midfield with the signing of the Russian and seeing as Fellaini is set to go the other way out the door, this could be the transfer that works out brilliant for United in years to come.
