It's no secret that Manchester United despite being one of the biggest clubs in world football are finding it increasingly difficult to compete with the emerging influence of foreign money in the game.
The likes of Manchester City, Chelsea, Real Madrid and Barcelona seem to be on another planet when it comes to bidding for players. Sir Alex Ferguson has already missed out on top targets Eden Hazard, Jordi Alba and now faces a struggle to secure the signing of Luka Modric from Tottenham, thanks to increased interest from Real Madrid, Chelsea and PSG who could each blow United out the water in a bidding war.
So what would happen if United were to be taken over by an Arab Sheik or a Russian billionaire this summer? Would they finally be able to stack up the cash to secure Luka Modric? Would they be able to tempt Gareth Bale away from White Hart Lane in a double swoop? What about the elusive defensive midfielder they have been after?
