Manchester United fans here in the Transfer Tavern are having a heated debated over the number 10 role at Old Trafford next season.
There could be a midfield merry go round next summer with many a player coming to the end of their contracts and clubs looking thin on the renewal front. Indeed, there some big names up for grabs, according to our locals anyway, and United have been heavily linked with one in Mesut Ozil for the majority of the season. That would see the German reunite with the manager who arguably got the best out of him at his time with Real Madrid.
The Red Devils have eight players coming to the end of their contracts in 2018 with Juan Mata being one of them, though he’s been linked with a move to Real Madrid of late. Although the Spaniard is a firm fan favourite here in the Tavern, manager Jose Mourinho has already shown the World Cup winner the door once before, so you can’t see him being afraid of doing it again despite a potential fan backlash.
