Van Gaal’s main targets based in Germany, say reports.
Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal could be doing his shopping in the Bundesliga this January, with a number of recent reports linking some big names of German football with moves to Old Trafford.
The Red Devils spent heavily on new signings during the summer, bringing in the likes of Angel Di Maria, Radamel Falcao and Luke Shaw as van Gaal looks to rebuild after last season’s highly disappointing campaign under David Moyes.
United could keep bringing in new players, however, with work clearly still needed to get the club back to its best, with results still not quite up to scratch so far this season.
If reports are to be believed, these four Bundesliga-based stars could be heading to United in exciting deals this January:
1) Mats Hummels (Borussia Dortmund)
Despite reports that Borussia Dortmund defender Mats Hummels would favour a move to Arsenal, Manchester United are known to be big fans of the £30m-rated German international, and will surely try again to sign him this January as van Gaal will prioritise a top quality addition to improve his side’s performances at the back.
