Even Manchester United fans can see that we’re on an upward curve right now.
We lost the Champions League Final, but actually enjoyed watching our football team during matches in 2017/18.
Jose Mourinho’s men limped to second, but played a boring, outdated brand of football that’s basically unforgivable considering the money at their manager’s disposal.
This summer, Liverpool are making serious waves in the transfer market – having already signed Fabinho and Naby Keita – with Nabil Fekir a strong possibility.
United fan @PogbesqueV3 noted this, while comparing it to the player Mourinho is focussing on – much to the internet’s amusement.
Fekir, Fabinho and Keita to Liverpool while my manager is in Russia scouting Marko Arnautovic and two Russian bartenders

And he wasn’t the only one who made the connection…
Fekir to Liverpool is done. Wow.
Keita Fabinho Fekir
Whilst we are pissing about spending £50m on Arnautovic.
Mourinho knows what he is doing, right?

Its hard to. Look at the names we are being linked with. Arnautovic,mandzukic. City just bought mahrez and jorginho ffs and they finished 18 pts ahead of us. Liverpool-keita and fabinho. We are already lagging

Liverpool: Signed Fabinho, with Fekir and Keita on the way.
United – want to sign Arnautovic.
FFS 🙈🙈🙈 I give up.

We’re looking forward to Marko Arnautovic and Alexis Sanchez keeping prodigal talents Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial on the bench, actually!
In all seriousness, United will still be a formidable opponent in 2018/19, if not a very aesthetically pleasing one…
They’ve got the world’s best goalkeepers, a number of game-changers and an always unlimited budget.
But while Mourinho is in charge and Klopp’s at our helm, we’ve got nothing to be scared of.
