Van Gaal to keep on spending, with three world class names on the agenda.Manchester United are ready to keep spending big money on more big-name signings this January, according to reports in the Daily Star.
The Red Devils invested huge amounts of money in bringing in marquee signings such as Angel Di Maria, Radamel Falcao, Ander Herrera and Luke Shaw this summer, and more exciting deals look set to follow when the transfer window re-opens.
Louis van Gaal is still on the lookout for players who could strengthen his squad in several key areas, while more departures are also expected to help fund these moves, with suggestions that big names could leave in a bid to raise around £91m in funds.
Three players seem to be the main focus for United, with defence and midfield still seen as the key areas in need of improvement:
3) Kevin Strootman (AS Roma)
Valued at around £60m, AS Roma playmaker Kevin Strootman could be another superb addition to United’s midfield, with the likes of Marouane Fellaini and Anderson surely set to be shown the door at Old Trafford. The Dutch international may be expensive, but he could be a huge signing for van Gaal, who knows him well from their time with the Netherlands national team.
