Manchester United: 5 stars to spend £200m budget on

If reports are to be believed, Manchester United manager David Moyes will have up to £200m to spend on new player this summer.

But who should the Scot - if, of course, he's still in charge at Old Trafford - spend all that money on?

Edinson Cavani | PSG

Estimated cost: £60m

Robin van Persie is now on the wrong side of 30 and the injury problems that have blighted most of his career seem to have returned.

Moyes must think about signing a world-class replacement for the Dutchman - and who better to fill the void than PSG striker Edinson Cavani?

The Uruguay international is reportedly unhappy at Parc des Princes, and a £60m bid could tempt the Parisians into selling.

Ilkay Gundogan | Borussia Dortmund

Estimated cost: £30m

Germany international Ilkay Gundogan would be a magnificent signing for the Red Devils, but can Manchester United prize the 23-year-old away from Borussia Dortmund?

Gundogan would bring some much-needed class to Manchester United's midfield; however, the reigning Premier League champions will need to fight off stiff competition from Real Madrid.

Luke Shaw | Southampton

Estimated cost: £30m

Manchester United are likely to need a new first-choice left-back this summer following the expected departure of Patrice Evra.

Several names have been mooted over recent months, but the pick of the bunch is Southampton's Luke Shaw.

The 18-year-old is a boyhood Chelsea fan, though, so United will need to act quickly in order stop the Blues from pouncing.

Angel di Maria | Real Madrid

Estimates cost: £30m

Angel di Maria would be a huge star at Manchester United. The 25-year-old oozes class and can play from either the left or right flanks.

Di Maria can score goals and create them, so he would be a no-brainer if Real Madrid make him available this summer.

Arturo Vidal | Juventus

Estimated cost: £50m

Just imagine a centre-midfield pairing of Gundogan and Arturo Vidal. Manchester United would immediately be able to compete with the Premier League big boys once more.

A £50m offer should be enough to tempt Juventus into selling the 26-year-old, who has established his reputation as one of the world's best central midfielders over recent years.

Total spend: £200m
