London Evening Standard have Manchester United fans looking up with shock on their faces here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they seem to think that the Red Devils are now considered to be a stepping stone type club.
This is according to Raymond Domenech, who seems to think that the Southampton midfielder should join United this summer and then use them to get a move to Manchester City or Chelsea, something that has gone down like a lead balloon here in the Transfer Tavern.
As our landlord notes over a pint, United are still a huge club and are back in the Champions League, not to mention spending big with a quality manager at the helm, so we think Domenech could well be made to eat some humble pie in the next couple of seasons should United get back on top.
Manchester United fans. Is this a sign of how far the club has fallen in recent years? How bad have things become if you are considered a stepping stone type club? Let us know your thoughts below!
