Louis van Gaal would be foolish not to use his cash and time to try and land a new striker before the window closes.
With only one offensive goal in three Premier League matches this season, it’s safe to say Man United should consider investing in a striker. And if recent reports about the club’s bankroll are correct, they have more than enough cash to land a lot of good ones.
According to the Metro, a recent report about that Man United have a whopping £73.4 million left in spending money to use this transfer period.
A sum of that size would likely be more than enough to land such high-profile targets as Bayern Munich’s Thomas Muller, PSG’s Edinson Cavani, or Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema.
Since signing a top-flight trio of stars with Bastian Schweinsteiger, Morgan Schneiderlin and Memphis Depay – but no strikers – Man United have been watching from the sidelines as studs like Pedro have been transferred to their rivals and other stars have been pulled from the open market.
Man United have been purging the roster of players who haven’t seen eye-to-eye with manager Louis van Gaal, sending Robin van Persie to Galatasaray, sending transfer-record setting flop Angel Di Maria to PSG and deactivating superstar goalkeeper David de Gea in preparation for a possible transfer.
Unfortunately for Man United, star striker Wayne Rooney has yet to record a league goal this season, leading Louis van Gaal to propose using Marouane Fellaini in the 9 or 10 spot.
