The Manchester United supporters here in the Transfer Tavern are still crying into their pint pots following last night’s 3-2 reverse to West Ham United, which leaves their Champions League prospects hanging by a thread.
United must beat Bournemouth on Saturday and hope that Manchester City lose at Swansea City in order to qualify for the Champions League, with failure bound to leave question marks over boss Louis van Gaal.
Our landlord has spotted an article via The Mirror that could put a smile back on the faces of the Manchester United faithful, with the tabloid reporting that Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane is a £25 million summer target for the Red Devils.
The 23-year-old defender has been linked with a move to Old Trafford previously but the move could now come to fruition during the summer months.
One United fan is waiting for the Wednesday night darts knockout to begin and he thinks that Varane would be a superb choice for United, stating that his presence at the back would be a major asset to the squad.
Manchester United fans, would you welcome the arrival of the Real Madrid defender? Is there another area of the squad that needs strengthening?
