Only a few years ago Manchester United and Arsenal fans were blasting the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City for spending massive amounts in the transfer market on new players, saying that they were ‘buying the title’.
But while Arsenal have stayed true to their financial limits (with Arsene Wenger having studied economics), the Red Devils have turned to the cash at the first real sign of struggle.
And that was heavily epitomised last summer after United shelled out over £150million on new signings, with one in particular breaking the British transfer record at £59.7million.
Well, now Angel di Maria has joined Paris Saint-Germain for £44million following an unsuccessful debut campaign, and United aren’t wasting any time in finding a replacement!
Barcelona winger Pedro has been heavily linked of late and it looks like the transfer is close, with the deal expected to be announced after the Spain winger plays his last game in the Spanish Super Cup for the Catalans.
However, it doesn’t seem like United are going to stop there, with a plethora of other names being linked with a move to Old Trafford.
Are these the players that are set to follow Pedro to the Theatre of Dreams?
Here are FIVE SIGNINGS to follow Pedro to Manchester United.
