The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern are eager to see further improvements to their squad this summer. The Red Devils have had a tough year, but it’s clear that they’re just a few changes away from being a near-perfect team.
There are, undoubtedly, some positions that need improving, and that’s certainly true of the left-back spot.
Ashley Young is getting on, and Luke Shaw is facing an uncertain future – leaving Mourinho needing to make a decision.
It appears that he wants to bring someone on board, at least according to a recent report from Spanish publication Sport. They reported last week (Tuesday, May 29th) that Man Utd are – alongside Chelsea – keen on Barcelona defender Jordi Alba.
Alba is, of course, one of Europe’s best defenders – offering brilliant pace, technique and offensive quality for one of the best teams in world football.
A move for the 29-year-old – who is rated at £54 million by Transfer Markt – it seems would be very popular with fans, with a whopping 69% of recently polled supporters voting in favour of a move. We recently asked fans whether they’d be interested in seeing Alba at Old Trafford, and it appears as though many would.
It’s not a real surprise to see that he is so popular. As mentioned, he’s impressive going forward, and under Mourinho, you’d expect the defensive side of his game to improve too.
Sure, he’s older than fans would like, but in terms of quality, Man Utd can’t do better.
