Louis van Gaal eyes five new signings worth mind-blowing £255m.
Manchester United look set to splash out an incredible £255m on new signings in the January transfer window, according to various recent reports.
The Red Devils were noted for their heavy spending over the summer as they broke their club transfer record to sign Angel Di Maria from Real Madrid, with the Argentine winger joining other big names such as Radamel Falcao, Ander Herrera, Luke Shaw and Daley Blind in moving to Old Trafford this season.
United’s spending has not led to massively improved results on the pitch so far, however, and Louis van Gaal looks set to continue his aggressive approach in the transfer market with five more big-name and big-money transfers in January.
It remains to be seen how the club will afford these ambitious deals, but below are the five huge signings that could be making their way to Old Trafford when the transfer wind0w re-opens in the winter:
1) Gareth Bale (Real Madrid)
In a deal expected to cost a world-record £90m, Real Madrid star Gareth Bale has emerged as a surprise target for Manchester United as they ponder an alternative to Cristiano Ronaldo in attack.
