Man United Ready to Spend £100m to Land Two World-Class Targets
Caughtoffside.com — The Man United boss has reportedly been handed a near limitless transfer fund budget and according to The Times the Old Trafford side are ready to spend £100m to snap up Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas and Tottenham attacker Gareth Bale.
Man United saw their efforts to land Barcelona’s Thiago Alcantara fail as the young Spaniard opted to reunite with Pep Guardiola at Bayern Munich and it seems that seeing local rivals Man City bring in a number of high profile new additions will act as the impetus for the Premier League title holders to step-up their efforts to bring in high-profile summer signings, having thus far not done so.
Now Man United are ready to smash their club transfer record twice in order to bring in the level of world class talent that Moyes feels his midfield and wide areas need in order to challenge for major honours in the face of renewed spending across Europe.
Moyes has publicly spoken of his desire to bring in ‘ambitious, top end’ additions and moves to bring in this pair of talents would certainly fit the bill.
Gareth Bale has an outstanding season last term, scoring 26 goals in all competitions, and the Tottenham man may well be tempted by a move to follow in the footsteps of his boyhood idol Ryan Giggs but one would imagine that not only would such a move have to exceed Man United’s current club transfer record of £30.75m, the outlay needed to sign Bulgarian Dimitar Berbatov, but it would probably need to double that fee just to get the North London side’s attention.
