Manchester United set for £22m-raid of Aston Villa

Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal is set to offer Aston Villa £22million for duo Fabian Delph and Ron Vlaar, according to reports.

The Dutchman is keen to keep spending, despite parting with over £150m in the Summer, and his attentions have turned to two Premier League figures in Delph and Vlaar, both whom have impressed so far this season for Paul Lambert’s side.

Van Gaal has worked closely with Vlaar and after the centre-back’s performances in Brazil during the World Cup, a big-money move was expected during the Summer, but nothing materialised from United and Arsenal’s interest.

However, United are ready to renew their interest in the defender and also want to bring his team-mate, Delph, as well to Old Trafford.

It’s believed they will offer Villa £22m for the duo.
