Old Trafford side ready to splash the cash on Aston Villa, AC Milan, Juventus, AS Roma and Borussia Dortmund stars.

It appears that Man United’s money-men are happy to back van Gaal financially, having handed the Dutchman over £150m to invest in his squad over the summer, and clearly realise that investment in the club’s playing staff is key to their recovering following last term’s shocking seventh place Premier League finish.
Moves to repair Man United’s central defence seem uppermost in van Gaal’s planning and the Premier League giants are readying a move for Aston Villa’s Ron Vlaar.
Van Gaal is confident he can lure Vlaar to join his side and chief executive Ed Woodward is readying a £7m bid for the 29 year old Villa Park skipper.
The former Feyenoord man, who played a prominent role in van Gaal’s national team set-up at the 2014 World Cup finals, is into the final year of his Aston Villa contract and despite his side’s excellent start to the campaign Man United are confident they can tempt the tough tackler to make a January move.
