Manchester United chase Arjen Robben and Bastian Schweinsteiger

Published 3 Comments

Manchester United have set their sights on a double-swoop for Bayern Munich's Arjen Robben and Bastian Schweinsteiger, according to the Daily Mail.

The Red Devils are expected to do some serious spending in the summer transfer market as they look to bounce back from their worst ever Premier League campaign last time round. Louis van Gaal has been placed in charge at Old Trafford but won't take up the reigns until after the World Cup, which means Executive Vice Chairman Ed Woodward has been left to get the ball rolling.

However it seems as though Van Gaal is still having his say despite being preoccupied elsewhere if Manchester United's top transfer targets are anything to go by.

The Daily Mail say that Arjen Robben and Bastian Schweinsteiger are the two men Manchester United want the most this summer. Previous reports have suggested that the latter could be available for as little as £15 million, and is being targeted as an alternative to Toni Kroos, who was previously linked with a switch to Old Trafford.

Robben meanwhile has started the World Cup on fire with a brace against Spain for Van Gaal's Dutch side, and it was 62-year-old boss who took the winger to Bayern back in 2009.

Interestingly the Daily Mail add that if both Robben were to arrive at Manchester United this summer, then it could spell trouble for Wayne Rooney. The England striker could find himself squeezed out of the first team.

Although a big summer lies ahead for the Red Devils they are yet to secure the services of a single new player, while the likes of Chelsea and Liverpool have already added to their squads.
