Attack the best form of defence for van Gaal.
Manchester United are ready to neglect defence again and spend an incredible £160m on three new attacking players in the January transfer window, according to various recent reports.
Despite concerns that United urgently need to tighten up at the back after an inconsistent start to the season, Louis van Gaal wants to build on summer signings of Angel Di Maria and Radamel Falcao by bringing in further options upfront to enhance his already immensely talented squad.
With some truly astonishing deals lined up, these are the three main targets for the Dutchman as we head towards January…
1) Gareth Bale (Real Madrid)
In a deal expected to cost a world-record £90m, Real Madrid star Gareth Bale has recently come onto the club’s radar as an alternative to Cristiano Ronaldo.
