Cesc Fabregas

Although David Moyes tried and failed to land the Spaniard last summer, Van Gaal is believed to be lining up another move for the midfielder. The Dutchman will have been encouraged by the rumours that Barcelona are willing to listen to offers for the player.

The addition of Fabregas would certainly address United’s creative difficulties and could perfectly complement the signing of Kroos. Although Arsenal would be considered favourites in any potential Fabregas transfer, Van Gaal should do his utmost to convince the 27 year old his future lies at Old Trafford.
