According to Don Balon in Spain, Manchester United are exploring the possibility of signing Barcelona’s Ivan Rakitic.
The news has got our resident Red Devils punters here in the Transfer Tavern all excited ahead of another transfer window with the Croatian being one of the most talented central midfielders around.
Indeed, it’s a familiar story with United this season who bought Paul Pogba in the summer but our local Red Devils fans will be hoping the former Sevilla man can hit the ground running compared to the Frenchman.
Pogba has had his fair share of critics this season for some underwhelming performances and with United already eleven points off of the pace in the Premier League title race, Jose Mourinho can’t afford to get this one wrong.
Rakitic is a class player, though, so you feel it’s less of a risk than other possible deals should it go through in January.
The Croatian international has made eleven appearances this season for the Catalan side in La Liga this year, hitting two goals, whilst he has also made five Champions League appearances so far.
Indeed, our landlord thinks he’d be a top signing and would certainly get United up the table.
