Club demand €20m for Van Gaal’s ideal Man Utd striker recruit

Mario GomezManchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern are debating whether to seal a move for a favourite of Louis Van Gaal, after being quoted a fairly expensive price for an experienced striker.

Turkish media outlet Radyospor state Besiktas will sell Mario Gomez to Manchester United in January, as long as the Red Devils agree to pay €20m for the privilege.

“At the end of the season if any club wants Gomez they will have to offer €20m million or more I mean we are talking about a German international striker who has proven himself countless times at the highest level,”

The German international has worked with Van Gaal before, during the duo’s time at Bayern Munich, and reports recently suggested the Dutchman wanted to bring Gomez to the Premier League in January.

United are currently well within the Premier League title race but face challenges ahead, whilst their form in front of goal has led to some concerns being raised. Van Gaal intends to fix those issues in January, which could prove to be expensive.

Red Devils fans, should you approve a move for Gomez or target another player for a similar fee? Who would you move for? Let us know in the comments below!
