But reports suggest that Khedira is now the main target for Van Gaal, who has been alerted by the German’s contractual situation.

Arsenal were linked with the World Cup winner during the last transfer window, but his rumoured £150,000 – £200,000-per-week wage demands put the Gunners off.

Chelsea and Liverpool are also in the running, butt United’s desire to return to the Champions League may allow them to blow their rivals out of the water.
