Manchester United are lining up a double deal to sign Real Madrid duo Pepe and Fabio Coentrao in the January transfer window.
United boss Louis van Gaal has been promised big funds in the new year to further strengthen his squad, with defensive cover on the cards.
And claims in Spain suggest United are ready to go all out for powerful Madrid centre back Pepe and his team-mate Coentrao in a double deal.
Pepe would add significant cover and strength to the middle of the back-line, while Coentrao can play at left-back or on the wing, giving plenty of options.
The pair would likely cost a combined fee of £30million.
