Our Manchester United fans here in the Transfer Tavern cannot wait for their side to get going this season as they are expecting a top year.
The men from Old Trafford are really hoping that Jose Mourinho is going to lead them to the title this year and he’s certainly made big signings in order to try and bolster those chances.
Whether that works or not, though, remains to be seen with the season soon upon us but it looks as though the club is not going to be able to sign Ivan Perisic this summer.
Indeed, according to the Manchester Evening News, the Croatian’s current club – Inter Milan – have opened talks with the player with the view to him signing a new contract.
That, then, would come as a real spanner in the works after it appeared that United were keen on the player and now it remains to be seen if Mourinho goes for another winger.
At the moment, then, he has the likes of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial who can play there so we’ll have to wait and see what the Portuguese does.
The Red Devils have had a decent summer with the players that they have signed but will surely be a bit annoyed that they look set to miss out on Perisic.
Jose Mourinho clearly wanted to sign a direct, out and out winger this summer and it now looks as though he’ll have to go elsewhere to try and do that.
Thoughts, United fans? Let us know below!
