'If It's Football, It's Vital'

United Transfer Talk - 16th February 2014

With David Moyes ready to dip into the transfer market this summer and spend the largest transfer kitty a manager of United has ever been given, the media are already hinting at who might be turning up on the doorstep.

This morning one Sunday tabloid is implying that United will be delving into the German market to bolster the squad.

Apparently, David Moyes is taking a keen interest in the Borussia Dortmund pair of Ilkay Gundogan and Marco Reus as well as watching the Bayern Munich star, Toni Kroos.

Out of the three, it is hinted that United may have more success chasing the Dortmund pair with Dortmund, apparently, interested in taking Shinji Kagawa back to the Bundesliga.

But out of the pair of Gundogan and Reus, it is pointed out that the former might be more readily available although the fact that Gundogan has been out of action, for six months, with a back injury is a major concern.

Reus, Gundogan AND Kroos?! Wouldn't that be nice. Realistically we'd do well to get anyone of those 3. Gundogan come the end of the season will have only a year left on his contract so he's the most likely but Dortmund have proved they don't mind losing players on a free and it's unlikely they'll want to lose another key player having just lost Lewandowski. Reus is only possible if we meet his release clause which, with todays transfer market considered, isn't too bad else he's happy at Dortmund and won't push for a move whilst Dortmund won't let him go for anything less. Kroos is possibly the most likely of all of them despite what everyone is saying. Firstly Bayern can afford to lose him what with Martinez, Schweinsteiger, Thiago and Gotze (off the top of my head) natural midfielders and Lahm and Alaba capable midfielders. Secondly, from what I understand Kroos is demanding parity of wages to what Schweinsteiger and Lahm are earning but Bayern are reluctant. From a sporting perspective if he's willing to leave a club he's played for all his life who are currently the pinnacle of football where he's a first team regular you've got to imagine, assuming we give him the money he wants, joining us wouldn't be an issue. Ideally we really could do with all 3.
Would be great to get them even 2 of them but its more likely that Moyes will play it safe again and sign people from the prem. Tbh I just cannot see Moyes talking players into joining a club in its worst state in 20 years, who may only have Europa league football to offer and whose manager plays football akin to that played in 1066 with a pigs head.
