It’s going to be fun this year folks. Because Manchester United are richer and more dissatisfied than ever before.
And with a wasp chewing, machiavellian manager at the helm, there will be next to no concern about sustainability with the transfer kitty.
Jose is hellbent on success and that means turning Manchester United into a battering ram next season.
One player who has again hit the headlines in relation to United transfers in the latest news cycle is Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.
He’s a wizard of a midfielder with serious physical presence but magical metatarsals. He floats around the park imperiously for a big man and has a magnificent first touch and a box of tricks that Zlatan and Pogba would be proud of.
And The Manchester Evening News writes:
Manchester United have reportedly been knocked back with a bid of £80million for Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.
That’s according to an article on Il Bianconero, which says United are among a host of clubs interested in signing the highly-rated Serbia international.
Whether or not there is substance to this one it seems ever more likely to us that Jose Mourinho is looking for not one but two new central midfielders this summer.
With Fred clearly on the wish list Manchester United may look to add another top man for the engine room. This may, in turn, suggest that United have lost patience in their attempts to renew the contract of the worst player in the Premier League – the big Belgian Marouane Fellaini.
TFF really likes the look of this 23-year-old but the fee being suggested is prohibitive.
Manchester United fans: is it a price worth paying for a player who potentially has another 10 years at the top?
