The landlord here in the Football Transfer Tavern has just sent out a batch order requesting some new bar mats given the fact our current ones are all scrawled over with dream starting elevens for various teams next season.
This is a summer ritual here in the tavern with supporters often wielding their biros to map out just how exactly their sides could be looking next season with new faces lining up alongside trusted club legends.
As our resident cleaner sweeps their way through the bar collecting the old beer mats, he notices that many Manchester United fans have been in of late.
Find more Red Devils XI’s than most, it is rather interesting to see who United fans are holding out hope of signing this summer transfer window.
With Memphis Depay already in the bag of course, it appears United fans still want a fair few million spent before September comes around with David De Gea on course to sign for Real Madrid, a new right back needing to be sought, let alone another midfielder and striker.
Dutch arrival Depay cost a huge £31 million but don’t for one second think that this fee has put Louis van Gaal off spending more with the Red Devils boss having broke the bank last time around to land Angel Di Maria, Marcos Rojo, Daley Blind and Luke Shaw.
Before our cleaner throws out our Red Devils scrawled beer mats, he is sharing one of the punters’ XI’s with you guys. Do you agree with their selections?
