Barcelona are eyeing up two potential deals which could put paid to Manchester United’s transfer plans for this summer, according to reports in Spain.
Spanish publication Mundo Deportivo claims that the reigning La Liga champions want to bring both Mats Hummels and Thomas Muller to the Nou Camp, and have also identified Toni Kroos as a possible options.
But whilst their interest in the latter star is only focused around the fact that his current deal expires in 2015 - meaning Bayern may want to cash in on him - it’s believed that Muller and Hummels are high on their list of priority signings.
Of course this will spell trouble for United, who have had the Bundesliga pair on their radar for sometime. Hummels has in the past been cited as having a release clause of €35million in his contract, whilst Muller is said to be available for €45million.
It remains to be seen whether or not David Moyes will be able to convince the two German stars that their futures lie in Manchester, but if his side fail to make the Champions League it will most definitely become an even more arduous task.
