According to The Express, Manchester United are preparing an offer for Real Madrid’s Sami Khedira, following news that the European Champions are planning to transfer list the Germany international.
The 27 year-old is regarded as one of Europe’s top ball-winning midfielders, and certainly suits the template of Louis van Gaal’s customary utilisation of an anchor man in his tried and trusted 4-3-3 formation.
The tabloids believe Los Blancos are prepared to sell Khedira for around £20million, but Arsenal and Chelsea have been hotly linked too.
However, amid reports of a £200million war-chest at his disposal, it’s unlikely the Mannschaft star will be LvG’s final acquisition of the summer.
With that in mind, here’s a list of FIVE United targets who could follow Khedira to Old Trafford this summer – some inspired by his arrival, others more coincidental.
