Following their 5-1 demolition of reigning World Cup champions Spain, there are certainly a few members of the Netherlands squad van Gaal will want at Old Trafford next year.
Tonight’s big game sees reigning champions Spain take on Louis van Gaal’s Netherlands in a repeat of the 2010 World Cup final. But keep an eye on for Daryl Janmaat.
Unfortunately for the ‘Little Pea’, his lack of regular football has led to a goal drought for his national side and in turn has seen him lose his starting place.
There aren’t many top players that say no to Manchester United when they come knocking, but this summer that number is increasing by the day.
Louis van Gaal hasn’t named the final member of his backroom staff for when he takes over at Old Trafford, but a former United coach has ruled himself out.
With transfer stories flying about and all the defenders being linked with moves to Old Trafford, it would seem van Gaal doesn’t have much faith in the current centre-backs.
With Javier Hernandez linked with moves abroad, Manchester United’s search for a new striker has lead them to a familiar name. But I can’t see him joining the Red Devils.
With the best part of 15 years in the media and a successful playing career behind him, Chris Kamara has established himself as one of the most popular faces in football. We had a chat with the man himself about Louis van Gaal, Adnan Januzaj and what United fans can expect next season.
Even though only two years ago this Manchester United side were Premier League champions, the squad needs to be chopped and changed and van Gaal ready to swing the axe.
It seems like Louis van Gaal has enough to think about, with the Netherlands World Cup preparation, Manchester United’s squad overhaul and also who will make up his backroom staff.
Louis van Gaal will not take charge at Old Trafford until after his World Cup campaign with the Netherlands in Brazil, but even he knows United need a new centre-back.
It seems another of Manchester United’s A-list targets won’t be available this summer and with United out of Europe next season, perhaps they’re looking at the wrong players.
