Our Manchester United fans here in the Transfer Tavern are gearing up for what will be an important and possibly season-defining festive period.
Man United host Burnley on Boxing Day in the hope to grab a much needed three points, having recently been dumped out of the Caraboa Cup by Championship side Bristol City, the fixture pile up in the new year has eased slightly.

In Mourinho’s bid to revitalise the team, many players have been linked with a move to Old Trafford in the winter window. Although the current first team squad must impress to keep their place first.
