Manchester United are lining up a surprise £20million bid for Everton defender Seamus Coleman, according to Metro.
Louis Van Gaal is expected to spend big for the second successive transfer window as he looks to secure United’s spot in the Premier League’s top four this season.
The Dutchman hinted that he is losing faith in current right-back Rafael after leaving him out of the 3-0 victory over Liverpool last month.
And it is believed he has Coleman at the top of his January wishlist, although Everton reportedly rate him at £30m and will not accept anything less.
But it’s rumoured Van Gaal has been handed a £150m transfer kitty this January and might be willing to meet Everton’s valuation.
