Manchester United fans hope Louis van Gaal can play his cards right in the Football Transfer Tavern as the Express reveals he intends to beat Arsenal to Schalke 04’s Julian Draxler.
The 21-year-old is considered as one of the best youngsters in the world and he has been on Arsene Wenger’s books for a long time.
But van Gaal, who has not been shy to splash the cash, will hope he can make a last ditch attempt to bring him to Old Trafford, to add more dynamism and youth to their attack.
The German has been very impressive in the Bundesliga for Schalke but he is now injured until the New Year after hobbling off after 15 seconds in their game against Augsburg.
Despite his hamstring injury, it is believed both clubs are not holding back in their pursuit for the youngster.
But with a price tag in the region of £35m, some Manchester United fans are unsure on the purchase.
Because although he would add great qualities going forward, it is imperative that van Gaal strengthens his defensive back line during the January transfer window.
