As all the football for the season is finally coming to an end, the transfer window rumours get hotter. And one transfer that seems to be getting closer is Wan-Bissaka to United. They had an initial bid rejected, but a bid of 50 million could get him and United are confident. Wan-Bissaka is a superb young player and has the potential to be one of the best right backs in Europe. In my opinion, this is a no brainer for United. Fans may think there are other priorities like a centre back or holding midfielder, but who do United really have at right back? Ashley Young and Dalot? Okay then. Wan-Bissaka would improve them hugely and be a great signing, regardless of the price. If they get this over the line, it'll be a massive positive for Ole and the club.
Bruno Fernandes really impressed me in the Nations League final. He was a constant threat from long range and was very direct and aggressive when on the ball. I could see why a load of Premier League clubs have been showing interest. Spurs are looking at him as an alternative if they can't get Lo Celco whilst United are trying to strike a deal with Sporting Lisbon for the Portuguese man. City are also waiting in the wings as they ponder a move for another playmaker to replace David Silva. Whoever gets him will have a classy looking footballer on their roster.
According to Sky Sports, United and City are set to fight it out for Harry Maguire. First things first, Sky Sports aren't the once trustworthy source they used to be. However, for the purpose of what I'm writing, I'll trust them this time. It's no secret City want a new centre back to replace Kompany, and Maguire has been linked for a long time to the club. It's also very much not a secret that United need to bolster their defence, so Maguire would make sense. I've seen a lot of fans turn their nose up at him, claiming they don't want him. Don't be so hasty. Harry Maguire has continued to impress defensively for a
number of seasons and has been arguably the best English centre back. He is also a sensational ball player out from the back. He has the potential under good management to become a top defender. Why would Pep want him if he's no good. Last season he made a few mistakes across the season, but this shored up once Claude Puel left. I think he would be a really good signing for either club. But he will likely cost a huge amount of money and may even be as expensive as Van Dijk. So we will have to wait and see what pans out.
That's all for today. Didn't think there was any worthwhile football yesterday to talk about. Maybe there will be today and I can go over it tomorrow. See you then.
