It may have been the hottest day of the year so far yesterday but in truth, our resident Manchester United fans in the Football Transfer Tavern were hot and bothered anyway.
Their frustration stems from the fact that their club have been linked with more transfer targets than any other club, yet the only player that has arrived at Old Trafford so far is Memphis Depay.
With another centre back, another striker and potentially another goalkeeper required for United this summer, Red Devils fans would love Louis van Gaal to get a move on in his recruitment drive.
As for Chelsea, Jose Mourinho only needs to land some finishing touch kind of signings this summer with a new understudy to Thibaut Courtois required after Petr Cech’s departure, not to mention a new striker to replace the departed Didier Drogba.
Finishing fourth of course last season, United fans want to see their team push on next term while pushing the likes of Chelsea a lot harder when it comes to the Premier League title race.
While signing high calibre players such as Sergio Ramos will help, van Gaal will again have to ensure that any new arrivals gel quickly with Chelsea’s side settled and rarely incurring injuries, meaning that they yield their best performances for most weekends during the campaign.
All of this talk surrounding these elite clubs of English football has led our United and Blues supporting punters to devise a best combined eleven comprised out of players from both sides. Do you agree with their selections?
