Louis van Gaal ready to splash the cash to strengthen at Old Trafford.
Read more Manchester United transfer news.
Manchester United’s new manager, Louis van Gaal, has already been active in the transfer market this summer, spending big money on left back Luke Shaw from Southampton and Athletic Bilbao midfielder Ander Herrera.
With the club’s hierarchy having indicated that they are willing to spend, however, this duo are unlikely to be the final pieces of van Gaal’s jigsaw, with reports now linking the Dutchman with a huge swoop for four new players ahead of the Premier League’s big kick-off.
It would undoubtedly be a huge boost to United fans if van Gaal is successful in his pursuit of these four players, with their opening match against Swansea City now little more than a week away.
Mehdi Benatia (AS Roma)
United are preparing to launch a £30m raid on AS Roma, according to the Express, with Moroccan centre back Mehdi Benatia the subject of the Red Devils’ interest.
With Roma reportedly lining up a replacement in Greek defender Kostas Manolas, United have now been alerted to the availability of one of Europe’s finest centre backs.
