The Premier League title holder’s will see their current deal with Nike come to an end in 2015 and a new contract said to net Man United between £700m ($1.1bn) over the course of a decade long deal worth around £70m a year.

The move will apparently see David Moyes handed a massive transfer war-chest which he will look to invest in his squad this summer with two Bayern Munich stars topping his wish-list.

Moyes wants midfielder Toni Kroos and attacker Thomas Muller, a pair that will cost Man United a fairly hefty fee.

24 year old German international Kroos has been in contract talks with his Allianz Arena employers for a lengthy period and his demand of a pay-rise from his current £60k a week to as much as £150k has apparently angered the Bavarian side and perhaps this could lead to his exit.

However a move to bring in Muller would appear to be a lot tougher to secure with the 24 year old being a crucial member of Pep Guardiola’s attack, providing the invention and the finishing touches on many a Bayern Munich move.

Thus far this term the adaptable attacker has racked up 17 goals and nine assists in 28 appearances in all competitions.

Having brought in Juan Mata from Chelsea David Moyes may now look to re-shuffle his Man United squad with the likes of soon to be out of contract trio Nemanja Vidic, Rio Ferdinand and Patrice Evra likely to leave in the summer and under-performing first teamers Nani, Ashley Young and Shinji Kagawa all playing for their futures at the Premier League club.
