Transfer Balls: Manchester United are buying a ‘surprise’ striker – so Luis Suarez it is
Manchester United are getting a surprise. Team manager Louis van Gaal says the player is “in the process” of joining. He added:
“It’s not the striker that the media has written about. You have to wait and see. The transfer period is open until August 31. You have to wait.”
Considering every striker worth his salt has been linked to United in the media, we can only wonder if Van Gaal doesn’t read the Press or if he’s buying Diego Costa or Luis Suarez. So. For SEO purposes, here’s the news: Manchester United are buying Luis Suarez.
Unless it’s all balls and United are buying Thomas Müller, Robert Lewandowski, Edinson Cavani, Álvaro Morata and Harry Kane. It’s not “the striker” – it’s “the strikers”. Van Gaal is such a tease. Man United are buying all of them.
Or as the Telegraph puts it:
Man Utd transfer news and rumours: ‘Louis van Gaal prepares €100m Thomas Muller bid’
But Luis Van Gaal never saw that story.
