The Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern are absolutely delighted right now.
Having smashed West Ham United 4-0 in their season opener on Sunday, the signings of Nemanja Matic and Romelu Lukaku look as if they’ll be celebrated at the Theatre of Dreams for years to come.
Indeed, there’s such a good feeling amongst our resident Red Devils at the moment, that reports from ESPN have been well received.
They claim Jose Mourinho has told the board to hold off making another signing this summer, instead preferring to reassess his options in January. Indeed, while the Portuguese is understood to have wanted four players this summer, efforts to bring a new winger to the club have reportedly proved frustrating.
The self-proclaimed ‘Special One’ is said to be wary of upsetting the harmony within the squad at the moment and the club will now apparently wait until the New Year, unless an unexpected chance to land a new signing comes up.
Judging by the performance at Old Trafford on Sunday, it’s hard to blame Mourinho, with our drinkers believing United have their strongest squad in years.
Though a new winger would seriously strengthen United, they do have one of the best squads in the country right now. If a new man arrives, then great, but it’s not an overly pressing concern.
Keeping the harmony sweet is far more important.
