After selling their record signing Angel Di Maria to French giants Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United have been looking to complete a marquee playmaker signing this summer.
Spanish star Pedro was on Manchester United’s radar but the Catalan attacker opted to join Chelsea instead.
After Pedro, Manchester United have been heavily interested in signing Real Madrid superstar and the world’s most expensive player Gareth Bale.
Reports suggest that the Red Devils made an offer of 73.1 million pounds to hire the services of the former Tottenham star, however, the Los Blancos rejected the big money bid.
Metro cite latest reports in Spain claiming that Manchester United are now ready to sign Bayern Munich’s Dutch playmaker Arjen Robben before transfer deadline ends today.
As per the provided Metro link, a fee of 73 million pounds has been suggested but it will be baffling if United pay that heavy a sum for someone who will turn 32 in over four months.
The veteran attacker who has scored 170 goals (for the clubs) still remains one of the best wingers in the world and Man United manager Louis van Gaal is well aware of his compatriot’s qualities.
