Manchester United set to spark Premier League spending spree


The Premier League's top four look set to break all record with a huge summer spending spree, The spree will be fuelled by record media money from the Premier League.

The top four of Cheslea, Manchester City, Arsenal and Manchester United will want to ensure they don't fall of the Champions League bandwaggon. Lack of European top action certainly cost United dear last season.

Liveroool and Tottenham look set to play bridesmaids and this has tempted United to make an audacious bid for stars Harry Kane and Hugo Lloris.

According to the The Daily Telegraph claim Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has told boss Mauricio Pochettino that both players are staying put.

It's reported that Levy and Pochettino view the duo as integral to their long-term plans.

The north London club have faced difficulties reinvesting the £85m bagged from Gareth Bale's switch to Real Madrid in 2013.

And it's thought Levy doesn't want the same problem happening again.

But the lure of Champions League football for both players will be a problem for the North London club in keeping the pair and £70 million will go a long way as Spurs plan for life in their new stadium from 2017.

Meanwhile Manchester City may turn their attention to Juventus Star Paul Progba on top of their £30 million plus bid for Liverpool's Raheem Sterling.

Pogba is also interesting Barcelona but City have shown intent and according to Sunday papers have made a £58million approach for the Juventus ace.

Another Juve ace, Alvaro Morata insists he remains committed to Juventus following reported interest from the Premier League. with Arsenal front runners.

The Spain international has become an instant hit in Turin following his£15million move from Real Madrid last summer, scoring 15 goals in 45 appearances and helping Massimo Allegri's men reach the Champions League final after securing the Serie A title.

Morata, who won Europe's elite competition in 2014 with Real, was linked with a move to Arsenal before joining Juventus, although Manchester United and Liverpool are all said to still be interested. It seems unlikley he would join the later though given lack of Champions League action.
