Old Trafford boss keen to spend big.
Louis van Gaal may have spent upwards of £150m on new players last summer but it appears he needs to fork out a fair bit more as he pushes for a top four finish.

The Man United manager has earmarked moves for a trio of talents who could set the Old Trafford side back as much as £70m.
Perhaps unsurprisingly it’s the club’s defence that van Gaal is looking to primarily invest in and with that in mind the Dutchman is readying a £20m bid for Southampton right-back Nathaniel Clyne according to the Daily Express.
The 23 year old has been in fine form over the past 18 months, leading to a call-up to Roy Hodgson’s England set-up, and would represent a second big money St Mary’s raid in the space of six months with Man United having invested a massive sum to bring in Luke Shaw.
Clyne has been scouted by Man United in recent weeks and is seen as an improvement on the likes of Rafael and Luis Antonio Valencia who currently vie for the right-back berth.
