Tis the season to be jolly, tra-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la, lots of transfer rumour folly, tra-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la. With the January transfer window almost upon us, United fans now face the prospect of enduring one transfer story after another as everyone from journalists to ‘ITK’ tweeters suggest the latest name destined for Old Trafford. The newest addition to what will surely be a non-stop list of players certain to be wearing the Red of United next season is Southampton’s Adam Lallana. The England international is enjoying a superb season for the high-flying Saints and could be available at a price that David Moyes’ would be willing to pay.
The Star- hardly the bastion of journalistic integrity, admittedly- are running with the story on their back page that Moyes is ready to launch a bid for the 25 year-old. Lallana may not be the sort of big money signing that excites United fans, but should the Reds sign him, at the very least he’s an exciting player with experience of the Premier League that means he could go straight into the side. I’ve heard stranger transfer rumours, although personally I think United should be aiming a little higher.
