Louis Van Gaal is preparing to capture his first January signing ahead of the opening of the transfer window with a deal for Bayern Munich attacker Xherdan Shaqiri.
The Switzerland international has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League, with the likes of Arsenal and Liverpool all reportedly showing an interest in the winger.
According to the Express, United are set to secure the signing of Shaqiri by allowing summer signing Ander Herrera to move in the opposite direction. German giants Bayern are keen to add another central midfielder to play alongside Xabi Alonso and have expressed an interest in the former Athletic Bilbao star.
Injuries have hampered his progression at United since his £30 switch, and Pep Guardiola is close to sealing the switch which would see Shaqiri and £7m head to Old Trafford. source: sportsvibe.co.uk
Van Gaal has already spent £150m since his arrival at United, and is prepared to continue bringing in talent from across the world to bolster his side.
Selling someone less than six months after buying them, plenty of patience at United obviously.
