Manchester United transfer news
The Red Devils are keen to keep an eye on the situation at the Allianz Arena, with manager Pep Guardiola showing in the past that he is not shy of dithcing big names and making unpopular decisions in the transfer market.
Louis van Gaal might now be about to raid his old club, with the Dutchman known to be keen on spending big since he moved to Old Trafford last summer, signing established stars such as Angel Di Maria, Radamel Falcao and Ander Herrera.
