Manchester United will target deals for three more players before the close of the transfer window following the capture of record buy Angel di Maria, according to the Guardian.
The Red Devils are gearing up for a busy few days in the transfer market having all but wrapped up a deal for Di Maria, who is about to become the most expensive player in the club's history.
The Argentinian international should be confirmed as a Manchester United player later today having agreed a contract worth £200,000-per-week over five years.
That deal is expected to spark a mad scramble at Old Trafford as they look to play catch up having struggled to get any business done over the past few weeks. Luke Shaw and Ander Herrera arrived near the start of the window for a combined fee of around £62 million, however their next signing, Marcos Rojo, didn't arrive until almost two months later.
Now with just under a week to go and the Di Maria deal all but wrapped up there could be up to three new arrivals at Manchester United.
The Guardian say that there remains three players on manager Louis van Gaal's radar; Juventus star Arturo Vidal, Ajax utility man Daley Blind and AC Milan enforcer Nigel de Jong.
The Dutch boss has previously admitted that he wants to add options at the back, a role that Blind could certainly fill although as yet no approach has been made. Vidal has been a long-term target for Manchester United - although that move looked dead until recently.
The latest batch of reports claim that Manchester United have made an offer in the region of £32 million plus a player having turned their attention to the Chilean having wrapped up their move for Di Maria.
De Jong may be viewed as an alternative to Vidal if Juventus are unwilling to play ball - which publicly at least, they have insisted is the case.
The Red Devils are certainly in need of some fresh blood after their slow start to the season; so far they've only picked up a point from their two games against Swansea and Sunderland.
