Man United target Bayern Munich superstar

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal is ready to launch a £25m move for Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben if he is named as David Moyes’ successor, according to reports from The Sun.

The Dutchman looks set to be the next man in the dugout at Old Trafford, with some rumours having suggested that a deal is all but sealed.

Van Gaal is likely to be given upwards of £150m to spend in order to rebuild the club’s ailing squad, and is ready to bring in his compatriot, Robben.

The flying wide-man has been one of Europe’s top attackers in recent seasons, playing a key role in Bayern’s Champions League and Bundesliga successes.

However, the German giants are believed to be ready to sell him if a good offer is received, and the prospective United chief is willing to spend up to £25m.

Despite being 30, Robben is still seen as a top talent, and could form a deadly relationship with the likes of Wayne Rooney and fellow Oranje star Robin van Persie.
