Manchester United are still hoping to land Bayern Munich star striker Thomas Müller, and they are aiming to reach a deal by this week.
According to Sport Witness, Man United will offer the Bundesliga champions £58m for the German international.
This would come close to the British record transfer fee that the Red Devils paid for midfielder Angel di Maria, who was signed for £59.7m.
Man United boss Louis van Gaal is believed to be keen to bolster his attack before the end of the summer window and will be even more desperate to bring in a striker after watching his side struggle to a scoreless draw with Newcastle.
United’s attack have been underwhelming as a whole throughout the 2015-16 season, despite the side’s undefeated record.
It will be difficult for the Red Devils to lure Müller away from Bayern Munich, with the 25-year-old having so far spent his whole career with the Bavarian giants.
He has gotten off to a fast start for the Bundesliga giants this season with three goals in three appearances.
The club has already insisted that the 25-year-old striker is not for sale, but another offer from the Red Devils may become impossible to refuse.
