‘forget Perisic’, ‘perfect choice!’ – Man Utd fans urge Ed Woodward to sign young winger

‘forget Perisic’, ‘perfect choice!’ – Man Utd fans urge Ed Woodward to sign young winger

Following their awe-inspiring Premier League opener, the fans of Manchester United have been celebrating their new entrants at the club but they appear to want the club to go one better in bolstering the squad before the transfer window is shut.

Paris Saint-Germain forward Julian Draxler has become out of favour at PSG and Manchester United have been alerted to his availability, according to the Daily Express.

Draxler had returned only two weeks ago to Parc des Princes as he was granted extended break following his exploit at the FIFA Confederations Cup in Russia, in which he won the player of the tournament. However, the signing of Neymar Junior from Barcelona in a £200million deal has not just raised speculation over the player’s future, it has unsettled him.

Unai Emery took over the reins of PSG last summer but he seem to have imposed his own ideology on the club – under Emery, the former Ligue 1 Champions have transitioned to playing a 4-3-3 formation since last season and the arrival of Neymar means he has formed an attacking trio with Angel Di Maria and Edison Cavani, leaving Draxler as a fringe player.

While Draxler, who joined PSG from Schalke in January isn’t the worst winger in the world, he certainly isn’t the best, little wonder the French outfit are heavily linked with a move for Kylian Mbappe. And if the French youngster is signed, it will push the German winger further down the selection perking order of the club.

Draxler’s spell at Parc Des Princes looks like it is coming to an abrupt as the report by the Daily Express claims he’s been permitted to sort out his future. The fans of United have been thrown into frenzy at the prospect of landing the star as they have called on their club to sign the star.

The Red Devils have been linked with summer with Inter Milan’s Ivan Perisic but we may have to turn our attention to Draxler. The German star is younger and has all the qualities exhibited by Perisic, and so he’d be a better option.
