Well, the transfer window has just closed but the rumor mill is just as active.
Robin van Persie has had a couple of major moves and is another one on the cards?
Apparently the Spanish paper AS has stated that Real Madrid and Barcelona will be attempting to get his signature in the hope of prising him away from Manchester United.
How true this is remains to be seen as his relationship with manager van Gaal has been highly documented due to the pair being quite close.
Would this be a good signing for either?..Absolutely…
The thought of van Persie linking up with the likes of Gareth Bale, Ronaldo, Lionel Messi…and a whole load of others, is a very mouth watering prospective
Also in the equation is Gerard Pique moving from Barcelona to Manchester United…so the question on everyone’s lips is there a swap deal in place already?
Mmmmmm…the mind does wonder….and with the defensive frailties shown by Manchester United, notably against Leicester City last weekend, and with only having one fit, senior centre back available to play in the whole squad, clearly van Gaal needs to make some adjustments.
