Manchester United are ready to use their financial weight to pursue and end of season triple transfer swoop for Mats Hummels, Kevin Strootman and Nathaniel Clyne, according to reports from The Express.
Despite dropping out of the Champions League last season, the financial blow – which may kick in during the next set of results – hasn’t appeared to hit the club too hard, with Deloitte’s football rich list naming the Red Devils as runners-up to Real Madrid.
A staggering £424m of revenue was raised by United, who spent an all-time transfer window record high of £150m over the summer.
And it appears the same may happen later this year, with reports revealing that the Premier League giants wants Clyne, Hummels and Strootman.
Roma’s Strootman is widely seen as an end of season target as the Italian’s hold firm over his future.
Hummels – who won the World Cup with Germany last year – is a long-term target, but, again, reports suggest the club may have to wait until the end of the campaign to land the Dortmund ace.
Clyne is seen as the ideal solution to Louis van Gaal’s right-back issues, with the Dutchman thought to be keen on adding more quality to that side of his backline.
His Southampton team-mate Morgan Schneiderlin is also a target, while Everton’s Seamus Coleman is another name in the mix.
