Five transfer targets for United

Red Rants at related • 0 views
Over the past two seasons just about anyone and everyone has been linked with a potential move to Old Trafford. In his first summer transfer window Louis Van Gaal spent nearly £150 million on new talent, bringing in six players who have all enjoyed periods of good form this season when not injured. Although the two big name signings of Radamel Falcao and Angel Di Maria have failed to live up to expectations, Van Gaal has got the most out of his less hyped signings, like Daley Blind and Ander Herrera and Marcos Rojo.

Mata’s double delight.
