THOMAS MULLER TO MANCHESTER UNITED?
Manchester United hope a big £60 million fee will persuade Bayern Munich to let Thomas Müller leave the Bundesliga champions this summer.
Chief executive Edward Woodward has sanctioned the hefty price tag after selling Robin van Persie to Fenerbahce for £4.7m.
After selling Danny Welbeck to Arsenal and sensibly not pursuing further negotiations with Radamel Falcao, United are in need of purchasing a top striker to challenge for trophies.
Also Harry Kane, Edison Cavani and Alexandre Lacazette to be on Louis van Gaal’s shortlist.
Existing strikers at the club include the rookie James Wilson and the injured Javier Hernández.
United have Champions League football again and the capabilities to offer a tasty wage packet.
But the Red Devils have already spent £25m on Memphis Depay, and are looking to secure Matteo Darmian for an agreed £12.9m; while they remain hopeful about signing Southampton‘s Frenchman Morgan Schneiderlin for £30m.
