It looks like Manchester United are getting ready to spend big again this summer in an effort to compete for their first league title since Sir Alex Ferguson left the club.
Jose Mourinho has made no secret that he is prioritising the Europa League final as a pathway into the Champions League and this will of course help to attract the calibre of player that the United fans here at the Tavern are accustomed to seeing at the Theatre of Dreams.
Our landlord – like Caracol Radio – seems to be sure that Real Madrid’s James Rodriguez is on his way to Manchester. There’s no doubting his skills, and with the first team football he’d get at United he could take the Premier League by storm.
With money to spend and ambition to match, there is plenty of speculation as to who could be joining the Colombian maestro at Old Trafford in the summer. But where does Mourinho need to strengthen and add depth?
Don Balon has mentioned this one recently. There has been plenty of chatter about where Griezmann will go should he leave Atletico Madrid. We would love to see the talented French forward grace the Premier League and the opportunity to join his international teammates Pogba and Martial may just be the edge United need to attract him.
Too many times this season Man United have struggled to break down some of the smaller teams in the league, but with the creativity and dynamism Griezmann would bring to their front line, Mourinho’s boys will have a bit more of a cutting edge to their attack.
The Independent has reported this one recently. It may take another world record transfer fee but it would be a very big statement indeed if Gareth Bale was to head back to the Premier League. There’s not much else left for him to win at Real and the lure of a return to England may be too much for Welsh forward to turn down
Bale is a proven Premier League superstar and would help make United great again. His wing wizardry and lethal long range shots will excite the Old Trafford faithful and strike fear into any opposition
