Manchester United are set to become the new Galacticos if reports today are to be believed. It is claimed that Louis van Gaal will be handed at least another £100m to spend next summer to restore United to their former glory.

According to The Guardian, United are "planning another summer transfer splurge" to follow the £150m they spent last summer on crocks such as Radamel Falcao, last seen in action sometime in October. The paper claims that among the players on Van Gaal's wishlist are Roma's Kevin Strootman, "who would cost around £30m", Borussia Dortmund's Mats Hummels, a snip at £35m, Barcelona's Dani Alves, practically being given away at £15m, and Arjen Robben, who would cost "no less than £40m".
