Louis van Gaal will bring a more fluid and attractive style of play, which could lead to an exodus of players from the squad, whom the Dutchman deems not good enough.
Robin van Persie’s move between Premier League rivals Arsenal and Manchester United came as quite a shock and it seems another Gunners Captain is on his way to Old Trafford.
