Manchester United are set to pull off a stunning swoop for Leonardo Bonucci, Robert Lewandowski and Thiago Alcantara.
Manager, Jose Mourinho has spoken of his desire to bring in at least, two more players before the transfer window closes after landing Diogo Dalot, Lee Grant and Fred.
Independent, UK, reports that United feel that it is possible to sign Bonucci from AC Milan and Bayern Munich duo, Lewandowski and Thiago.
Bonucci had also been linked with a return to Juventus after just one season at Milan.
Bayern have a new manager in Niko Kovac and Thiago is expected to have a prominent role in his team. And Bayern chief Karl-Heinz Rummenigge ruled out the possibility of the midfielder leaving on Wednesday.
He said, “Thiago is an important player here, we have never expressed any thoughts that he is leaving the club, there has never been anything in the story.”

But the 29-year-old is understood to have had a change of heart and now wants to remain at Bayern.
