Manchester United are a football club who are expected to spend big once the summer transfer window opens in the close season, with a whole host of big names on Louis van Gaal’s wish list that’ll probably be in excess of £100million.
We’ve been given a hint at the Iron Tulip’s plans this summer, by the usually reliable Andy Mitten who owns the popular fanzine ‘United We Stand’.
Mitten says that Van Gaal has a shortlist of preferred targets, and if those aren’t signed up by June 30th, he’ll then move onto his second choice in each of those positions.
Its clear that United want to get their transfer business done as early as possible and this is beneficial for a couple of reasons.
First of all it means that the club are less likely to get involved in a bidding war over the signing of players, and secondly it means the new lads can get stuck in straight away, and get a full pre-season under their belts with new teammates.
