£150m Transfer Budget? Top Five Players Manchester United & Van Gaal Should Target

published :

Dutch Legend Louis Van Gaal faces a herculean task after taking charge of Manchester United after the World Cup. The Dutch Legend who ascends the managerial helm at Old Trafford has to deal with two major points of conflict in the transfer market. First, with the departure experienced players like Nemanja Vidic, Rio Ferdinand and Patrice Evra means that the entire defense needs a reshape and secondly without Champions League football, United will have to use their brand value to attract the best of the players in the market. It is believed that Van Gaal is set to be handed a whopping transfer kitty of £150m and we here at Soccersouls being football enthusiasts provide five players whom Manchester United can court in the summer.

Toni Kroos:

The German has been flirting with the Red Devils since January when David Moyes expressed his desire to sign the German midfielder. Kroos is yet to sign a contract extension at Bayern with repetitive talks coming to halts, but Van Gaal’s knowhow in Bavaria and his attacking 4-3-3 setup might entice Kroos who is perhaps on the lookout for a different challenge post the World Cup. However, will the 24 year old shun the highest echelons of Champions League football for a switch to Old Trafford?

Cesc Fabregas:

This wouldn’t be good music to Arsenal fans. However, if plain truth prevails, United have been after Fabregas since last summer and with a mass exodus set to follow at the Camp Nou outfit, there are reports in Spain that the former Arsenal midfielder might be on his way out this summer. Spanish journalist Guillem Balague explained in one of his articles for the Bleacher report, that Fabregas has a contract release clause of €40 million and anyone turning up with that figure can have him, even though his buy out clause is 200. It would be a dagger in the Gunners’ hearts if Fabregas reunites with Van Persie at Old Trafford.
