Manchester United are willing to spend big in January to land a Galatico, according to reports.
The Sunday Mirror says the focus will be on bringing at least one of the world’s stellar players to Old Trafford after Louis Van Gaal admitted his current team aren’t good enough to win the Champions league.
Van Gaal has spent excess of £250 million since summer of 2014 making United title contenders once again, Van Gaal has warned he must be allowed to splash the cash again if the club is to be capable of becoming champions of Europe again.
United will perhaps have to double their current level of player investment to £500m to deliver the kind of big names who will pacify supporters. Van Gaal and his employers are in agreement that the Red Devils have lost their x-factor in recent years and have drawn a wish list that includes Real Madrid pair; Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale plus Barcelona’s Neymar.
United should go for Neymar and Gareth Bale not just because they are among the best young players around but because they would become the future of United for years to come. But Cristiano Ronaldo, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Arjen Robben that are being linked to United are nearing the end of their playing careers and are viewed as short term solutions to United’s current predicament.
Saido Mane, Harry Kane, Neymar, Gareth Bale and Marquinhos joined to the current squad would make United a strong competitor to any team in the world.
