Cape Town - Former
Everton player Leon Osman believes Toffees midfielder Ross Barkley
would be a good signing for Manchester United in the upcoming transfer
Barkley was ever-present for Ronald Koeman's Merseyside outfit this
season, making 36 Premier League appearances. He scored five goals and
made nine assists in the league.
Former team-mate at Goodison Park, Osman, believes Barkley could be
exactly what Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is looking for in
“He is one of the top players in the Premier League," Osman told talkSPORT.
“He has had a decent season for Everton, has scored some great goals and has showed what he is capable of.
“If a team feels he can do a job for them, they will get him at a snip.
“There has been a lot of talk about Tottenham and him going down
there. They have got a fantastic team, but would he be the first name on
the team sheet? I don't know.
“I think someone like Man United might want him. Jose Mourinho likes
his physical players, he likes everyone in his team to be powerful and
big, and Ross Barkley certainly fits that bill.”
United play Ajax later in the Europa League final with the winner qualifying for next season's Champions League, which could affect United's transfer activity.
