Premier League outfit Manchester United are planning a triple swoop this summer in the shape of Thomas Muller, Sadio Mane and Borja Mayoral.
Bayern Munich ace has been Van Gaal’s favourite for some time now and since Bastian Schweinsteiger is at Old Trafford, the German international now has double interest at the Premier League club. It had been rumoured that 25-year-old himself is interested in playing for the 20-time Premier League champions.
Van Gaal had been his manager at the Bundesliga outfit and Schweinsteiger is his compatriot. The latter has also been asking to make the move to Manchester.
However, the Bavarians tactician Pep Guardiola has been rejecting offers of negotiations from the Premier League side. Having said that, his possible transfer to join his national teammate cannot be overruled at all.
Van Gaal might be able to convince the Star of the South with a £60m along with luring add-ons. The Dutchman is also preparing to dish out some more cash to purchase Southampton winger Mane. His current evaluation of the player is in the neighbourhood of £20m.
He is also planning to bring Real Madrid’s whiz kid Borja Mayoral in any deal that will exchange the 18-year-old with David De Gea.
