Manchester United seem set for a huge summer of gigantic spending as Jose Mourinho looks to transform a squad that finished a lowly sixth in the Premier League this season into genuine title competitors.
But our landlord reckons who leaves Old Trafford could be as interesting as who comes in, especially for the rumour-mad punters here at the Transfer Tavern. The Red Devils gaffer has contended with a large, over-inflated squad this season and after a full campaign to run the rule over every player, cuts will surely be made.
That’s great news for some of the Premier League’s other clubs like West Ham. Mourinho may deem some of them no longer fit for purpose but the vast majority of players on the books at Old Trafford have the quality to help push the Hammers up the table.
With that in mind, our landlord has taken a look at three forgotten-about gems, who’ve been forced to watch from the sidelines for much of the season, that West Ham should look to pluck from the Red Devils’ ranks before the close of the summer transfer window.
