Manchester United fans are wondering when their bad luck is going to end here in the Football Transfer Tavern, and it is all down to Metro.
The publication seem to be under the impression that Real Madrid player Angel Di Maria may not be on his way to the club in a £50 million move after all – because former suitors Paris Saint Germain are willing to make a loan offer that neither Di Maria or Real Madrid can refuse.
As one of our punters notes over a pint, there is simply no way Louis van Gaal can afford to let a player of Di Maria’s quality slip through his fingers and the Red Devils must lure the winger to Old Trafford one way or another.
Our landlord makes the point that we think Van Gaal will have been begging to sign the Argentine, but Ed Woodward has been dragging his heels once again.
And after the episode last summer, we are not sure Woodward has what it takes to get the deal done.
