It’s been a long time since our Manchester United fans here in the Transfer Tavern have had genuine thoughts of winning the Premier League title. Although they did have a glimmer of hope early on last season, that soon faded and they ended up settling for the best of the rest title.
If it wasn’t for local rivals Man City’s unbelievable campaign, the Red Devils would have surely been in the mix for the top prize in English football this season. Despite this, United under Jose Mourinho have had their best season in the Premier League since they last won it in Sir Alex Ferguson’s final campaign in charge, and despite many claims, there are improvements in United since he took over.
Still, for Mourinho and his men to level up next season, many of the regulars in the back room feel they need a couple quality players in certain key areas of the pitch to bolster their chances.
With that in mind, our landlord feels United should be going all out for these two stars to Old Trafford next season, and they could certainly be the difference between another second-place finish or being the Champions…
OUR VERDICT – Toby Alderweireld and Toni Kroos
Spurs defender Toby Alderweireld is into the last year of his contract and there are links to Old Trafford arising within the pub. The Belgian would certainly bring a level of experience to the team and would vastly improve the back line.
If Mourinho wants to go fully for the title next year then the foundation of the defence is where he must start, and there’s no better than Alderweireld at present.
Toni Kroos is probably one of the only players around Europe who can come to Old Trafford and directly replace the retired Micheal Carrick. Kroos is a player to link the back to the front within the team and is just the type of player United need.
Indeed, with these two in the team, it would certainly push United on to the next level in the Premier League.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
