Man United boss Louis van Gaal is keen to step-up his summer spending with reports suggesting that the Dutchman is armed with a hefty transfer war-chest.

Man Utd Ramos: Five Real Madrid players Reds should sign instead, with Bale, Ronaldo & Chelsea target
Gaitan Manchester United: Benfica star’s agent CONFIRMS Old Trafford transfer deal
Morgan Schneiderlin (Southampton) £25m
The Daily Star claims that the St Mary’s midfielder is one of a trio of targets Man United are chasing, with the Old Trafford side’s offer of £25m having already been accepted by the south-coast side.
Van Gaal looks set to beat Arsenal in the race to sign Schneiderlin, who has been in superb form over the past two seasons, and the French international is ready to make the step-up to represent a side challenging for major honours.
Nicolas Gaitan (Benfica) £24m
Long term target is once again on the Man United radar with the club ‘nearing’ a deal to sign the £24m rated Argentine winger who could join national team colleagues Angel di Maria and Marcos Rojo at Old Trafford.
Gaitan has played a key role in helping his Benfica side to back to back Primeira Liga titles and a high-profile move to Man United should aid his push for a more prominent role at national team level.
Arda Turan (Atletico Madrid) £28m
The final member of the trio the Daily Star claim could be on his way to Man United with Louis van Gaal apparently ready to spend as much as £28m on the playmaker.
The Turkish international has proven a massive success at the Vicente Calderon but having seen Diego Simeone’s side fall away in 2014/15 the former Galatasaray man may be tempted by a move to Man United.
Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid) £42.5m
Having failed with an initial bid for the Bernabeu star the Daily Telegraph reports that an improve offer is set to be registered by the Premier League side.
Ramos would help strengthen Man United’s shaky defence and van Gaal may well be able to keep the price of the World Cup winner down by offering David De Gea in a part-exchange deal.
