The January transfer window will see the English Premier League clubs getting down to business to try and sign the players from their wishlist. Manchester United are already getting ready to flex their financial muscles again, as they prepare to line up yet another bid for the Dutch winger Arjen Robben to try and lure him from his current club Bayern Munich.
The saga of Robben and the Red Devils has been going on for a while. It started way back when Sir Alex Ferguson was in charge, with Robben linked with a move to Old Trafford in every single transfer window.
According to German newspaper Bild, the Dutch superstar is unsettled at his present club Bayern Munich, with his problems with club mate Robert Lewandowski growing day by day.
United manager Louis Van Gaal spent a lot of money in the summer transfer window to get his desired players into Carrington, but he needs to spend more wisely now as in this ongoing season the club have struggled to score goals.
Real Madrid star Gareth Bale is another player on the wishlist, and the Welshman questioned Manchester United and the quality of their players, according to Spanish news outlet Fichajes.
The duo of Bale and Robben are likely to cost around Â£150million and that is not a small amount, even for Manchester United.
Bale was also one of the players that Van Gaal wanted during the summer transfer window. A David De Gea and Gareth Bale swap deal saga was talked about till the end of transfer window.
