Manchester United in bid for Schalke duo Howedes and Draxler

According to the Metro, Manchester United are lining up January approaches for Schalke winger Julian Draxler and defender Benedikt Howedes

Due to their injury crisis in defence, United manager Louis Van Gaal is looking at bolstering his backline with the experienced German centre-back, who won the World Cup last summer. Howedes is highly-rated in the Bundesliga, and will be heavily coveted in January.

As for Julian Draxler, the young German would provide some pace and creativity on the flank, which United have been desperate for. The likes of Adnan Januzaj has been disappointing this campaign for the Red Devils, and Draxler is much more close to being the finished article, and could help with ammunition for the forwards.

Reports are suggesting the duo will see United back more than £50M.
