World Cup winner ‘keen on joining Man United’ as Van Gaal closes in on deal

Reports have claimed Manchester United are preparing a surprise £14million bid for Schalke star and German World Cup winner Benedikt Howedes, according to the Metro website.

Louis Van Gaal has sent scouts to watch the versatile centre-back after learning that Schalke are willing to let him depart for a reasonable fee.

Howedes, 26, played a crucial role in Germany’s success at the World Cup finals in Brazil this summer, and is believed to be open to joining the Red Devils as early as January.
