The kids were alright yesterday as the Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern watched Jose Mourinho’s youngsters beat Crystal Palace yesterday.
While the Red Devils around the bar did enjoy watching young prospects handed a starting berth at Old Trafford, many of them are more focused on discussing just who could arrive at the club on the transfer front over the summer.
Indeed, one of the most strongly linked names recently has been a certain James Rodriguez. The Colombian has previously been reported to have all but agreed a switch to the Theatre of Dreams this summer, though a story out of Spain of late has moved against that.
According to Don Balon, Paris Saint-Germain are ready to make the 25-year-old the highest paid player at the Parc de Princes should he move back to France this summer. The former Monaco man is understood to be of huge interest to Unai Emery in the French capital as he looks to improve after missing out on the Ligue 1 title.
Rodriguez will reportedly make a decision between the two parties this week, with his preference thought to be playing in the Champions League next season. United can qualify for it by winning the Europa League on Wednesday night and the locals in the bar are hoping for a victory in Stockholm.
For if they do, they could be seeing a superstar such as James strutting his stuff in front of them next term.
