Our Manchester United fans here in the Transfer Tavern are very pleased that their side looks like title contenders once again for the Premier League.
The men from Old Trafford look the strongest they have since Sir Alex Ferguson retired and Jose Mourinho will be confident that he can lead his side to glory.
For sure, he has put together a powerful side with the likes of Nemanja Matic and Romelu Lukaku about and it seems as though other players like the idea of being linked with the club.
Of course, United have always had an appeal and it seems to be getting back to its highest level in recent times with Jack Butland one player happy to have his name touted with a potential move.
Indeed, though he is happy at Stoke at the moment a move to United would surely be of interest and he has welcomed such talk – even if he’s remained non-committal.
As quoted by The Daily Mail, he said:
“I guess I hope the speculation keeps coming as that means I’m playing well but none of that of matters anyway as we’re in the season.”
Certainly, then, he’s focused on Stoke but it’ll be interesting to see what happens if United make a move.
Over the last few years you could argue that some players have turned United down given the way they have been but it seems as though that is going to become rarer and rarer again.
Butland seems happy to be linked with them for sure, and it remains to be seen what happens in the future with him and a potential move.
Thoughts, United fans? Let us know below!
