After securing the high profile and morale boosting signing of Chelsea and Spain star Juan Mata in the January transfer window for a club record fee of 37.1 million pounds, David Moyes is reportedly set to spend big again.

According to the Mirror, the United boss is set to make an exhilarating double swoop for Borussia Dortmund duo Ilkay Gundogan and Marco Reus, with Shinji Kagawa perhaps going the other way. Recent reports suggests that the Glazers are set to offer a transfer kitty in excess of £150million to the United boss to strengthen his line-up.

£25 million is the valuation that has been touted in the media for Gundogan's services - a fee that wouldn't put him out of United's price-range.

The prolific German playmaker has been out of action since August with a serious back injury which might prove to be a hitch in the Red Devils' pursuit of the player. However there is no doubt that once he completely recovers from this lengthy spell on the sidelines, he'll be back stronger than ever and may become one of the biggest signings in recent United history.

Marco Reus will be another player which Moyes will be looking to bring to the Theatre of Dreams. With almost all of United's wingers performing far below expectations this year, Moyes has had to turn his attention to young prodigy Adnan Januzaj to deliver on the wings, a duty which the Belgium born youngster has successfully fulfilled.

In their current squad United lack a talismanic,speedy and skilful winger who can run riot with his crosses. Reus is definitely one of them. He has evolved to become one of the best wingers in the world during his time at Dortmund and United will be looking to lure him to Old Trafford desperately.

The exit of two of their star players, Mario Gotze and Robert Lewandowski, along with a combined lack of form can propel a summer exodus at the Signal Iduna Park and Jurgen Klopp will have to make some extraordinary signings if he is to keep hold of two of his star men.
