In the midst of the third international break of the season, thankfully, a plethora of transfer speculation has emerged this weekend, thereby allowing me to muse and keep things ticking over.
The first piece that has caught my eye relates to Jose Mourinho’s continual search to improve the heart of the Manchester United defence.
According to the news source, the Express, Mourinho’s search for a top-class centre-back could end a lot closer to home than many thought.
Our referenced source is of the opinion that Jose is keen to land the Brighton defender, Lewis Dunk.
The 27-year-old has emerged as a strong candidate after a string of fine performance have seen him become an England international with Dunk earning a first cap against the USA in midweek.
Looking at the positive aspects of a possible deal we acknowledge that Dunk has ample Premier League experience and has shone in a side that, to be fair, are happy to retain their Premier League status each season.
There’s also the fact that at 27-years-of-age, Dunk is approaching his prime and would be able to give Manchester United several years of good service.
But, on a negative point, would signing Dunk make the rest of the Premier League sit up and take note that Manchester United mean business or would that need a far bigger name to achieve that quest?
Your thoughts on the possible signing would be most welcome in our comment facility beneath this article.
