World Cup winner pushing for Man United move this summer

Manchester United are reportedly lining up a move for Schalke defender Benedikt Howedes, reports the Metro.

Schalke boss Roberto di Matteo is desperate to keep the centre-back but Howedes is understood to be ready to push for a move to England, and United are thought to have singled out the World Cup winner.

Louis Van Gaal is looking to bolster his back-line and Howedes is just the type of player he feels would improve the defence. © 2017 Frontier Theme
