Robin van Persie’s future at Old Trafford is in some doubt after a poor season in front of goal, with manager Louis van Gaal now preparing to raid his old club to improve his attacking options.

Radamel Falcao has also been disappointing since moving to United on loan last summer, and his likely return to parent club AS Monaco means new signings up front have to be a priority for the Red Devils.

Muller now seems to top United’s list of targets, with the German international showing his superb goalscoring ability and big-game performances down the years for both club and country, winning a whole host of major honours.

According to the Daily Mail, United will try their luck with a £40m bid for the 25-year-old, while Spanish source Fichajes.net suggests van Persie could be on his way to AS Roma.
