LOUIS VAN GAAL is ready to splash the cash at Manchester United – with seven targets high on his radar.
Louis van Gaal is set to be given £150m to spend at Manchester United this summer Van Gaal will finish his first season as Old Trafford boss trophyless after United were knocked out the FA Cup with a 2-1 defeat to Arsenal last Monday.
But Express Sport understands the Dutchman will be given £150million-plus to continue his ‘project’ whether United return to the Champions League this season or not.
The Dutchman wants to sign six players this summer with a right-back, centre-back, central midfielder, winger and two strikers on his agenda.
Southampton ace Nathaniel Clyne and Borussia Dortmund defender Mats Hummels are Van Gaal’s preferred choices to bolster his backline.
Roma hardman Kevin Strootman will be a top target if he can complete his recovery from a serious knee injury, as is PSV Eindhoven flyer Memphis Depay.
United have been linked with a host of European strikers but Van Gaal is considering options closer to home – principally West Brom hitman Saido Berahino and Burnley frontman Danny Ings.
Berahino was spotted with his representative at Old Trafford last night while Ings is out of contract at the end of the season and is available for a compensation fee.
United are not expected to take up their £43m option to make Radamel Falcao’s loan move from Monaco permanent.
