Manchester United have been linked with two major transfer targets in the media recently.
If the latest reports are to be believed, United could break all sort of transfer records in the ongoing transfer window.
The Guardian claims that United are now leading the pursuit to sign Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba following Manchester City’s decision to drop out of the race.
United manager Jose Mourinho is said to be a long-term admirer of the France international. The Portuguese manager tried to sign the 23-year-old when he was in charge of Chelsea, but any move failed to materialise.
Pogba is expected to cost £65m, which will be a Premier League transfer record.
Spanish publication El Confidencial has linked United with a move for Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale.
The report claims that the Red Devils are confident of getting their long-term target in the summer.
The 26-year-old, who already holds the tag of world’s most expensive footballer, is expected to cost £95m to United.
United today announced the signing of defender Eric Baily from Villarreal for a transfer fee believed to be around £30m.
Mourinho supposedly has been handed a transfer kitty of £200m ahead of his first season in charge of the club and we could see a lot of transfer activity at Old Trafford in the coming days.
