Manchester United look to Bundesliga for ambitious transfer swoop

Published 1 Comments

David Moyes has turned his attention towards the Bundesliga with the intention of overhauling his Manchester United squad, reports the Sunday Telegraph.

The Manchester United manager relieved much of the building pressure on his shoulders with the £37m purchase of Chelsea star Juan Mata yesterday but has little intention of stopping there.

With Old Trafford officials fearful of dropping out of the top four, an ambitious transfer trip has been commissioned, with Moyes aiming for more big signings before the transfer window closes.

The Manchester United boss has already looked in to the possibility of signing Toni Kroos from Bayern Munich or Marco Reus from Borussia Dortmund. Both players have release clauses in their contract and Moyes is willing to meet them.

He is also maintaining an interest in Borussia Dortmund midfielder Ilkay Gundogan but doesn't expect to seal all three signings.

Moyes attended Borussia Mönchengladbach against Bayern Munich on Friday and also watched  midfielder Patrick Herrmann and striker Max Kruse, whilst staying aware of Dante, who is reportedly unsettled at the Allianz Arena.

It is an unusually blasé approach to discretion for Manchester United but Moyes is insistent on being heavily involved in future transfer deals.

A source told the Telegraph that he is keen to take an active role and “do the sales job” of convincing stars to move to Old Trafford.
