Following on from yesterday’s late arrival at White Hart Lane and then a five minute capitulation that saw Spurs put five goals past David De Gea to help keep Tottenham’s title chances alive, there is some good news to report on the transfer front.
According to The Sun, Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal is eager to bring Hull City defender Andy Robertson to Old Trafford in an effort to help solve the problems his team is having at left-back.
The British daily tabloid claims, that the Dutchman should he remain in charge at Old Trafford, he will be given a war chest of £80 million this summer to sign new players, plus any money he can recuperate from players who look set to leave the Theatre of Dreams.
Hull City signed the Glasgow born defender from Dundee United back in 2014 for £2.85 million, but given his stellar performance in the Premier League last season and the Championship this, the Arsenal targets price tag has jumped to a massive £15 million, a figure LVG is willing to pay as he prepares to cut lose Argentinean Marcus Rojo this summer.
The 64-year-old Dutchman feels that despite his young age, Robertson has what it takes to do well in the Premier League and that he will provide stern competition in the team for Luke Shaw.
This news will come as a bitter pill to swallow for Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, as he already had the Scottish international pencilled in as a long-term replacement for Nacho Monreal.
