Transfer News Today:The Real Madrid Star Set For Manchester United, And It's Not Ronaldo


Van Gaal Eyeing Galactico

It appears that despite having a plethora of them in his squad already, Louis van Gaal is very keen to add another number 10 to the Old Trafford ranks.

The newest name is James Rodirguez, who has supposedly fallen out with Real Madrid boss Rafa Benitez. The Colombian would cost something similar to Angel Di Maria, and with United getting their fingers burnt in that deal, would they really go down the same path? Either way, he would surely light up the English top-flight.

Klopp Targets ‘New Schweinsteiger’

Jurgen Klopp is set to add some German efficiency to the Liverpool squad this January and his first port of call will be Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Granit Xhaka, according to reports.

At the age of 23 the Swiss already has 39 caps for his country and at £20m he represents a great bit of business for the Anfield club. The former Basel man would add an intelligence and creativity to a fairly functional Reds setup.

Gunners Finally Set To Strengthen Defence 

Arsenal have a decent record at the back this term but regular lapses in defence aren’t quite a thing of the past and Arsene Wenger cannot rest on his laurels.

The French boss is looking to Juventus youngster Daniele Rugani to put pressure on the likes of Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny, something Garbiel has failed to do with enough regularity. He is deemed the best young defender in Italy and would represent a major coup if the north Londoners can make it happen.
