The £30m rated German international could be ready to leave Borussia Dortmund after the Westfalenstadion side fell further behind domestic rivals Bayern Munich.

With top-scorer Robert Lewandowski set to join Bayern Munich there is a chance that Jurgen Klopp could see other top talents leave this summer.

Man United are also reportedly close to completing the £27m signing of Southampton left-back Luke Shaw who will be brought in to replace veteran Patrice Evra.

Louis van Gaal will no doubt be given a hefty transfer war-chest to invest in a squad rebuilding project following the completion of a fairly disastrous campaign.

As well seeing the likes of Vidic, Ferdinand and Evra leave the club when their contracts expire the likes of veteran Ryan Giggs, Tom Cleverley, Darren Fletcher, Shinji Kagawa and Javier Hernandez could also be set for Man United exits.
