With just 17 days left to wait until the new 2015/16 Premier League season kicks off, the excitement here in the Football Transfer Tavern has kicked into overdrive.
The transfers and flurry of pre-season friendlies have kept most fan bases ticking along nicely and in recently passed hours, everybody has been waiting for Liverpool’s signing of Christian Benteke.
For the neutrals by the bar, they’re split on whether Benteke will prove a success at Anfield but our Manchester United regulars are claiming the Belgian is small fry compared to the calibre of targets they’re going after this summer.
Having already brought Memphis Depay, Matteo Darmian, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Morgan Schneiderlin to Old Trafford so far this summer, the latest speculation has linked none other than Bayern Munich’s Thomas Muller with a multi-million move to the Theatre of Dreams.
His current team-mate at the Allianz Arena Philipp Lahm did nothing to dampen the speculation regarding Muller this week, claiming a deal for the German international forward is not impossible.
While United fans wait patiently regarding movement on that particular transfer, we’ve devised what we believe to be the best possible starting eleven Louis van Gaal can field this term with everybody fit.
