Man United could be set to chase the signing of Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben…
Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal is preparing an ambitious £24m bid for former Chelsea winger Arjen Robben, who currently plays for Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich – reports the Metro.
Van Gaal knows the player well from his time with the Dutch national team, while United have been linked with the player in each of the last three transfer windows. United are still looking to improve their squad, and are keeping an eye on developments.
United spent over £150m in the summer transfer window, and even broke the British transfer record to sign Argentine winger Angel di Maria from Real Madrid. But club officials have promised to spend more as they seek a return to Champions League football.
Van Gaal signed Robben, 30, from Real Madrid when he was Bayern manager in 2009, and is pushing for another deal for the player this winter. Bayern are unlikely to want to sell one of their most crucial players, but could be tempted by a big offer.
