Here are five players Manchester United will look to sign before Cristiano Ronaldo is able to move back to Old Trafford.
The Everton full back has been linked with a move to Old Trafford in recent days as Louis van Gaal looks to sign a more reliable right-back.
The Dutch midfielder appears to be van Gaal’s main January target however, the midfield enforcer will come at a high price as AS Roma do not want to sell one of their best players.
The Juventus centre back is one of the many defenders United have been linked with recently. The Italian could be exactly what the Red Devils have been looking for and might be available for just £12 million.
The German winger is exactly the sort of player that van Gaal likes and would suit United’s style of play however, several other teams are known to be interested in Reus so the 20 time league champions will have a battle on their hands to secure the 25 year old’s signature.
The central midfielder was heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford during the summer and United could make another move for him in January if he recovers from a long term knee problem.
