Report: Manchester United plotting imminent transfers

Old Trafford Statues

Can Manchester United get off the blocks quickly this summer?

Manchester United want to wrap up transfer deals early this summer, report the Manchester Evening News.

This will be the first summer in three years the club will keep the same manager heading into the transfer window.

Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement led to a disastrous summer led by David Moyes, which was also chief executive Ed Woodward's first summer in charge.

Despite high profile pursuits of Cesc Fabregas and Gareth Bale, United only signed Marouane Fellaini on deadline day.

Last summer Louis van Gaal's involvement with Holland at the World Cup meant the Red Devils had to wait until July before signing Ander Herrera and Luke Shaw, as the club transitioned onwards after Moyes' sacking.

Van Gaal managed to sign Marcos Rojo, Daley Blind and Angel di Maria late in the transfer window but only after the season had kicked off and the club had suffered a shock opening day defeat to Swansea City.

With no World Cup or European Championship delaying player's decisions either, this summer is the ideal chance for United to get ahead and conclude their key deals early.

One big name tipped as a potential addition by the MEN is PSV winger Memphis Depay, who was part of Van Gaal's World Cup squad last summer, who SkySports confirmed this week the Red Devils had enquired after.
