Transfer balls: Man United’s ‘surprise’ non-striking striker target revealed

by | 22nd, July 2015

When Manchester United’s Louis Van Gaal played the media by telling everyone he was signing a striker not yet linked to the club, we began to guess.

Rumours are that it’s Fernando Llorente. According to the Mirror, the Spanish hitman is on his way to Old Trafford.

The signings of Pablo Dybala and Mario Mandzukic by Juventus this summer means that the 30-year-old Llorente will struggle for game time with the Old Lady. While, with his 6’5″ frame, the former Athletic Bilbao star would provide United with a proper physical presence in attack.

But hold the replica shirt printing because the Guardian says:
Manchester United’s ‘surprise’ signing is not a striker, says Louis van Gaal
It’s an egg? A dinosaur? Roberto Soldado?
After his team defeated San Jose Earthquakes 3-1 at the Avaya Stadium, Van Gaal said: “I don’t know if I want to buy a striker. I have read in the media that a striker is the surprise. No, that I have not said. You are saying that, because my answer is like that. No, I mean something else.”
Ever get the feeling someone’s winding you up?
