Sir Alex Ferguson is to sanction a £50m recruitment drive in order to retain the newly-won Premier League title next season, the Daily Mirror has reported. The Manchester United manager will try to bring Atletico Madrid’s Radamel Falcao, Borussia Dortmund forward Robert Lewandowski and Everton left-back Leighton Baines to Old Trafford, according to the newspaper.

To make way for his planned new recruits, Ferguson will agree to the sale of winger Luis Nani and midfielder Anderson, while Paul Scholes is expected to retire for a second time and Wayne Rooney’s future remains in doubt, with Paris Saint-Germain still thought to be lining up a bid for the England international.

United will already sign Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha at the end of the season, having bought Zaha in January and then loaned him back to the Championship club for the rest of the campaign.

Baines was also a target last summer but the deal never went through, with United buying Alexander Buttner instead, while to fill a potential void in midfield, PSV Eindhoven’s Kevin Strootman, Marco Reus of Borussia Dortmund and Celtic’s Victor Wanyama are all in contention, the Mirror claims.

United won their 20th league title on Monday, sealing the trophy with a 3-0 win over Aston Villa thanks to a Robin van Persie hat-trick.
