Rumour: Manchester United boss to eye Patrick Herrmann this weekend
Manchester United manager David Moyes will take advantage of his side’s weekend off by travelling to Germany to scout highly-rated young winger, Patrick Herrmann, according to the Daily Mirror.
The 22-year-old has been in sparkling form for Borussia Monchengladbach, scoring three goals and assisting four others in a productive season.
United’s third round loss to Swansea City earlier this month means they have no FA Cup tie this weekend, allowing Moyes to do some scouting of his own and watch Herrmann play against Bayern Munich.
Their defeat to Chelsea at the weekend was their seventh in the Premier League this season so Moyes is keen to add some star quality to his squad.
The reigning champions have been linked with a host of top stars all season and that has increased since the January transfer window opened.
It seems, though, that Moyes’ willingness to watch Herrmann in person is an indication of his intentions.
Only Max Kruse (50) and Raffael (28) have created more chances than Herrmann (26) for Monchengladbach this season.
