Manchester United want transfers done before World Cup

Manchester United are reported to have outlined the opening game of this summer’s World Cup as the deadline by which to have completed an unprecedented amount of spending on the acquisition of new players.

David Moyes is expected to invest heavily during the post-season transfer period and, according to the Manchester Evening News, the club are determined to have their business concluded by the time the FIFA showpiece begins on June 12.

The Manchester United hierarchy will reportedly arm Moyes with an enormous war chest of around £200 million, which should allow the manager to recruit a number of key targets, most of which have already been identified.

Midfield is again likely to be an area where Manchester United look to bolster having failed to do so significantly for two transfer windows that Moyes has seen pass as manager so far, with Toni Kroos of Bayern Munich frequently mentioned as a potential signing.

Kroos is wrangling with Bayern over a new contract, and the player has yet to rule out the possibility of leaving the Allianz Arena. The Germany international has also provided Manchester United with hope they could secure a deal, with Kroos claiming not playing in the Champions League would not be an issue.

Manchester United will also surely look to sign at least one central defender given that they will lose their captain Nemanja Vidic to Inter Milan, while it remains unclear if Rio Ferdinand will sign a contract extension.
