Paris St Germain are also on full alert but they are unhappy with Di Maria’s supposed interest in moving to Manchester.

United won’t quibble over Real’s fee as Van Gaal has enough funds at his disposal to negotiate a straight cash deal. On the other hand Louis Van Gaal is currently reviewing his squad on the USA tour. Wilfried Zaha has yet to feature and Nani has not really stood out in the two games he’s featured in. Ashley Young played well against L.A Galaxy notching up 2 goals and an assist, while Antonio Valencia looks certain to be in Van Gaal’s plans.

WORLD RECORD FEE? Man Utd Vice-Chairman hints they could spend big!

Angel_di_Maria_-_2011

Prepared to spend big!

Manchester United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has spoken out about the budget of the global footballing giants. It is clear that United are able to compete with the richest clubs in the world to sign the best players around.

“There is no budget, there is money. We are in a very strong financial position. We can make big signings. That doesn’t mean we are going to throw money around. Louis is the manager. We have a lot of scouting output through the last 12 months that is flagging various things to us.”

The Glazers have often been criticized regarding their handling of the club since taking over, however former manager Sir Alex Ferguson always spoke upon the owners in a good light and suggested that they are always willing to bid big for the right players.

 

“Whether it’s a record or not”

Who are Manchester United’s transfer targets? Will Ed Woodward have the final decision? Mr Woodward went on to suggest Manchester manager Louis Van Gaal will be deciding who joins the club.

“Louis is the one who makes the ultimate decision around who he wants in his squad. I am not going to force feed him with a player he has not selected. The reality is that we’re not afraid of spending significant amounts of money in the transfer market. Whether it’s a record or not doesn’t really resonate with us. What resonates is a top, top elite player that the manager wants that is going to be a star for Manchester United.”

Toni Kroos to Manchester United deal nearly done! (Sourced from ESPN)

Manchester United believe they are close to capturing Bayern Munich’s Toni Kroos after advancements, according to sources close to Old Trafford.

The United hierarchy are now confident that the agreement between the two clubs is in place for the 24-year-old to become the first of potentially five high-profile signings by Man United. As Toni Kroos is moving into the final year of his contract at Bayern, this makes it easier for United to get their midfield maestro. Kroos being in his final year may persuade the German Double winners to consider selling the player this summer rather than see him possibly leave for free 12 months later. Toni Kroos is not happy with the way Bayern value him and Man Utd may step in to give him the wages he believes he deserves.

Louis van Gaal, whose appointment as successor to David Moyes was confirmed on Monday, has a significant rebuilding job with several players moving on and Ryan Giggs, who will be his No. 2, also hanging up his boots. United plan to spend at least £130 million improving four key areas: central midfield, central defence and left-back.

Toni Kroos is the exact type of player that Manchester United need. It is easy to compare him to the likes of Paul Scholes. He is  a great central midfielder who has great vision, can pick a pass and has remarkable shooting range. Paul Scholes himself has urged the club to make Kroos a priority target this summer!

“The first player I’d bring in is Toni Kroos. He’s a top-class central midfield player but United need five or six to get anywhere near the top of the Premier League again.”

 

Surprisingly, United may enjoy more success in bringing in one of Arturo Vidal from Juventus or Barcelona’s Cesc Fabregas. While there is a belief that the Chilean midfielder can be secured relatively cheaply in relation to his standing, Barca may also be “open-minded” about offers for Fabregas. Cesc Fabregas is not strictly for sale, but Barca will consider approaches. Sources have stated that both United and Arsenal have been made aware of the situation.

How much is the supposed agreed deal for Toni Kroos worth?

Sources suggest Manchester United are proposing a £20 million move for the German playmaker, which will be a lot cheaper than the proposed £45 million deal for Cesc Fabregas.
