Everything at Manchester United seemed happy families, especially for the fans propping up the bar here in the Transfer Tavern. Indeed, our resident Red Devils have been delighted about the start to the season made under Jose Mourinho so far, believing it to the best since the glorious Sir Alex days.
With that in mind, recent suggestions the self-proclaimed ‘Special One’ may be unhappy with life at the Theatre of Dreams have somewhat derailed the punters propping up our bar, particularly with PSG recently thrown into the mix following Mourinho’s recent comments about Les Parisians.
So, a report from the Guardian detailing the interest from the French capital even further has seriously concerned the United fans who frequent us in their droves. While they do claim the 54-year-old is open to remaining at Old Trafford, there’s an interesting tidbit to have emerged in regards to interest over at the Parc de Princes.
Indeed, the Ligue 1 champions are believed to retain an ‘ongoing interest’ in the former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss, who reportedly retains an ‘admiration’ for them in return. Not the best news, when you consider just what lengths PSG went to in order to bring Neymar to the club from Barcelona, a deal no one would have thought possible until this summer.
PSG are hell-bent on conquering Europe it seems, so it’s likely they’ll be able to offer Mourinho some stunning terms to takeover in Paris. While he may have plans for United right now, those behind the scenes will have to pay to keep their man away from a club who were prepared to pay €220m for just one player.
