Manchester United transfer targets: Fabregas, Modric and Ronaldo in the mix for Moyes

Asmir Begovic
There is uncertainty over the long-term future of current number two Anders Lindegaard, with rumours that the Dane may seek a move elsewhere. Should that happen, United will need an understudy to David De Gea. Begovic has been the goalkeeper most consistently linked with a move to Old Trafford, but whether the Stoke City stopper would want to trade first team football to play understudy remains to be seen.
Leighton Baines
Manchester United looked formidable in the defensive department as the season went on and have a wealth of options at centre-back. With Rafael coming on hugely last season, if there is a weakness at the back, it is on the left hand side. 32-year-old Patrice Evra has his critics and bringing in Baines to replace him would provide United with arguably the best left-back in the country. Having been signed by and worked with Moyes, a rekindling of their relationship at Old Trafford would seem a realistic proposition.
Son Heung-Min
A cheaper option in the strike department would be Heung-Min. The South Korean forward has enjoyed a breakthrough season at Hamburg that has alerted a number of clubs to his talents. While Manchester United have been linked with the 20-year-old, so have Chelsea and Tottenham, with the latter said to be particularly keen. Borussia Dortmund are also lining up a move according to reports.

Manchester United may have just won the Premier League at a canter, but that doesn't mean they won't be making additions this summer.


David Moyes has an incredible array of talent already at his disposal, but he'll want to put his own stamp on the squad and that means big names could be arriving at Old Trafford over the next couple of months.

Never short of players being linked with the club, here, we round up those rumoured to be on their to Manchester United.
