Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal lining up Triple Swoop for Vidal, Di Maria & Hummels [Star]
- July 14, 2014
The Star go with a pretty spectacular backpage tomorrow, claiming Louis van Gaal is lining up an improbable ‘Triple Swoop’ for Juventus’ Arturo Vidal, Real Madrid’s Angel Di Maria, and Germany’s Mats Hummels.
While the first, Vidal, is at an advanced stage of negotiations, the other two are somewhat more complicated.
Di Maria has several other clubs interested, with the player himself reportedly agreeable to a move to PSG, with Monaco also interested.
Hummels, meanwhile, would be a fresh approach with no groundwork yet done, though the player may be open to expanding his horizons having just been crowned world champion.
One, maybe two, but the chances of this Triple Swoop fully coming off are incredibly slim.
