Manchester United Football Club have had a fantastic start to the year on the pitch, but away from the football side of things, the club have been very inactive in the transfer market. Mark Lawrenson has had his say on United’s transfer situation, and says it makes him laugh when the club get linked with huge names.
“It makes me laugh when they say they’re going to sign Ronaldo or Bale. They wouldn’t go and play for Manchester Utd.” Lawrenson said.
Its hard to disagree with him too. These two players enjoy playing with creative freedom and a license to thrill, but under Louis van Gaal they will certainly be told to cut back on that, which would be a real shame.
You’d also have to factor in that Real Madrid now have been handed a two transfer window ban, and its highly unlikely that they’ll part with any of their stars over the next twelve months as they won’t be able to replace them.
