Click the arrow above to see other big names Man United could sign – Ruud Gullit thinks Man United need to sign a ‘real striker’ before the transfer window closes. The former Netherlands and Milan midfielder, who managed Chelsea and Newcastle, thinks the Red Devils cannot rely solely on Wayne Rooney if they are serious about winning the title. Here, talkSPORT looks at possible additions beginning with Muller. Having already signed Bastian Schweinsteiger from Bayern, United would be hard pushed to seize another big name from under Pep Guardiola’s nose. However, reports of unrest inside the Bayern camp continue to do the rounds and United are prepared to pay another big fee for a major signing. Muller has scored more than 100 goals for the Bavarians and at 25, the forward is at the peak stage of his career to take the Premier League by storm. 5. Antoine Griezmann: Reports are claiming United have turned their attentions to the Frenchman after losing out on Pedro – According to the Daily Mail, Louis van Gaal has retained an interest in the Atletico Madrid forward all summer, but the Liga club have slapped a £55m price tag on his head. Griezmann scored 25 goals in 53 appearances for Diego Simeone’s side last term, sparking speculation he could earn himself a big-money move to the Premier League. 2. Robert Lewandowski: Bayern’s £50m-rated forward has been linked with a move to the Premier League in the past.
