The Manchester United supporters here in the Transfer Tavern are eagerly anticipating the inevitable arrival of new boss Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford, with a large amount of their supporters resigned to the fact that it will happen at some point.
Talk among two elderly supporters has turned towards which players the ex-Chelsea boss might try and sign for the Old Trafford-based outfit with several top class players touted.
Our landlord has spotted an article in La Gazetta dello Sport, which might offer some intriguing news to the United faithful, as it reports that the Portuguese boss has already identified Inter Milan defender Miranda as a target, once he gets the nod to move into the United hot seat.
The Brazilian only signed for the Serie A side in the summer but that is unlikely to deter Mourinho from pursuing the defender as one of his top transfer targets.
One United fan is playing pool in the Tavern and thinks the 31-year-old defender would be a solid acquisition as a central defensive partner for in-form Chris Smalling.
United fans… Who should Mourinho pursue once he gets the job? What do you know about Miranda?
