Yesterday’s capture of Nemanja Matic was celebrated loudly by the Manchester United fans who frequent the Transfer Tavern in their droves.
Indeed, many of our resident Red Devils are seriously expecting the Serbian bruiser to provide Paul Pogba with a platform from which to roam next term, though could complicate matters for others in the squad.
According to their report, the former Everton man could reportedly consider his future at Old Trafford in January, when he’d be free to discuss a move with parties from aboard. The 29-year-old is said to want more regular game time, especially with the World Cup just around the corner.
While he’s not always convinced since his move to the Theatre of Dreams, few would doubt his importance in certain situations and some of our punters are slowly getting on board with the notion of him staying.
Still, it’s fair to say that not too many tears would be shed at Old Trafford if he was to depart.
Fellaini may not be the most inspiring character for the Man United fans to rally around ahead of what they hope to be a sustained title tilt, though he could prove to be useful.
Mourinho famously likes his teams as strong as possible and pairing him with Paul Pobga and Nemanja Matic in midfield, operating behind the bulking Romelu Lukaku could help the self-proclaimed ‘Special One’ bulldoze teams next term.
