Van Gaal rivals Arsenal and Chelsea for defensive pair.
Manchester United could spend around £67m on signing two new centre-backs this January, according to various recent reports.
Top targets for Arsenal and Chelsea appear to be on Louis van Gaal’s agenda, with the Red Devils still in need of improvements at the back despite some impressive performances from youngsters Tyler Blackett and Paddy McNair in Saturday’s 2-1 away to the Gunners.
The two players are as follows:
1) Mats Hummels (Borussia Dortmund)
A player who could set United back as much as £47m, according to recent claims by the Daily Mail, Borussia Dortmund centre-back Mats Hummels has long been linked with a move to Old Trafford, and looks set to join the club this January despite interest from Arsenal.
