Manchester United could sign Gareth Bale or Memphis Depay - roundup

Football News

Manchester United could add either of Gareth Bale or Memphis Depay to their squad this summer, according to the Manchester Evening News. 

The report claims that the Red Devils are set to splash the cash once again in the upcoming transfer window, with Louis van Gaal set to be handed as much as £150 million as the club go in search of making an impact in next year's Champions League competition and targeting title success. 

It appears, then, that Van Gaal is a huge admirer of Depay, who worked under the United chief for the Dutch national side at this past summer's World Cup. 

The same report claims, however, that the club's executive vice chairman Ed Woodward wants to bring a top star to the club, which could ultimately lead them to Bale. 

It appears, though, that with the quartet of Angel di Maria, Ashley Young, Adnan Januzaj and Antonio Valencia already starring at the club, United will only look to bring one of Depay or Bale to English soil this summer. 

One thing's for sure, with the summer window on the horizon, it looks set to be another exciting period for Manchester United fans. 

Rooney could miss the rest of the season

United's immediate attention, however, will be confirming their place in next year's Champions League competition. It appears, though, that they may have to do that without captain Wayne Rooney. 

As reported by the Telegraph, the United striker is set for further tests on a knee injury, with it being suggested that he may well have sustained ligament damage late on in the game in Merseyside.

Perhaps, then, with the Red Devils in action against West Brom this weekend, Dutchman Robin van Persie may well come into the side after netting twice for the Under-21 team last night. 

Scholes hails Herrera 

Manchester United hero Paul Scholes has hailed Spanish midfielder Ander Herrera, insisting that he's been really impressed with the man brought in from Athletic Bilbao last summer. 

Herrera endured a tricky start to life at Old Trafford, however has been exceptional in recent months, and Scholes certainly rates him as a fine footballer. 

"I think it was difficult for all the signings at first," reflected Scholes. "The first six, seven, eight months were very difficult.

"I think I'd have to say [Ander] Herrera’s been the one who’s impressed me most. He was another who struggled to get into the team early on but now he’s playing really well, really good football.
