With no live-action or previews to deal with, the mainstream media sources are concentrating on something we all love, transfer speculation.
Lurking in the pages of The Mirror is something that should interest all Manchester United sources.
As we’ve found, over the years, getting a top-class central defensive partnership has been difficult, I’d suggest that the last great central defensive partnership we had was that of Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic.
However, I believe that we are halfway there with the recruitment, last summer, of Harry Maguire.
But, returning to our quoted source, the second half of what could be a great partnership could be secured this summer.
According to our referenced source, the Senegalese centre-back, Kalidou Koulibaly, is ready to leave Napoli this summer.
At 28-years-of-age, Koulibaly still has several years at the top left and he would form a great partnership with Maguire.
However, we’re not foolish enough to believe that if he does come on the market then there’ll not be a plethora of clubs looking to get his signature on a contract.
Can you imagine just how solid we’d be at the heart of our defence if the Old Trafford hierarchy were able to pair Maguire and Koulibaly?
Please feel free to air your views on the above subject matter in the comment facility beneath this article.
