We’ve been promised a busy summer from Manchester United, we know that there is a lot of money in the kitty for Louis Van Gaal to spend. But with only one signing under his belt so far are we going to be disappointed with the quality of players that are brought in?
David De Gea has been outstanding for Manchester United this season and much like what happened to Ronaldo, has been persuaded by one of the giants of Spain. I’ve got no ill feeling towards David wanting to move back to Spain and play for one of the other biggest clubs in the world and he’s acted incredibly professionally around the situation. What with the news hitting today that United want to get Ramos from Madrid in exchange for De Gea, it looks like they’re ready to give him up, but hopefully securing us a much needed defender in the process.
If the deal goes through and we get Ramos, our back four will be looking a lot better already but it leaves another new problem. Who will replace Spanish Dave in net? Valdes is a world-class keeper, but having not played regularly in a first team for quite a while I do worry if he’ll be up to speed for the premier league.
Cech was touted as one of our targets but it seems Arsenal managed to swoop in there before us although many news reports suggest it was Cech that wanted to move to the other London club. For me this is something that will really help Arsenal have a title challenge next season as a veteran goalkeeper like Cech gives them a solid foundation to build on.
Which leaves one Mr Hugo Lloris, heavily rumoured to be David De Gea’s replacement and it’s a well-known fact United love buying players from Spurs. Although it seems the deal isn’t quite done according to Lloris’s supposed replacements agent. He says no bid has been made for Lloris’s replacement and that he considers Hugo to be Spurs number one and doesn’t feel he’ll be going anywhere if they want to challenge for the Champions League. Although the fact this isn’t Lloris’s agent, I would take what he says with a pinch of salt.
I personally would like to see LLoris and Harry Kane leave Spurs for Untied as I believe they both would slot straight into the team and it would add some exceptional talent to an already pretty decent squad. I just hope we don’t end up paying over the odds for them if we get pretty desperate.
If we don’t sign Lloris I’m not sure who I would like to fill the number one shirt. Who do you think would be a good fit and more importantly, willing to come to United? Feel free to leave some comments below.
And one last little rumour to comment on about a certain Bayern Munich player. If this actually happens I think he could be a great signing for United and help lead the midfield next season, especially if Carrick can’t get over his injury problems. I’m eagerly awaiting the first drops of ink on the contracts we’ve got ready to see who we’ve managed to snag! I do think we’ll sign some quality now we have champions league football and next season should be a great season!
