According to reports from the Guardian, the Dutchman has already handed Ed Woodward, United’s executive vice-chairman, his list of desired players.

Manchester United are looking to spend big this summer and the new manager will be handed a transfer war-chest to bring in quality players. The top potential acquisitions includes Dutch winger Arjen Robben, his club team-mate Thomas Muller and Borussia Dortmund central defender, Mats Hummels.

Van Gaal also have given his approval for Southampton’s left back Luke Shaw and Bayern Munich’s world class midfielder Toni Kroos.

United had offered £27m for Shaw, the young talented left-back from Southampton, but it was rejected. The Red Devils are determined to land him in summer and would approach again with an improved offer.

As for other targets, it will be interesting to see, how Manchester United can lure them without Champions League football.

    He is highly welcome by my side.

  9. Louis van gaal is a very good coach, I can’t wait 2 hv him arround carrington ground. Wish him best of luck as he take over the greatest club in the world manchester united.

  10. I what’s Manchester United to spend beg in this season I we be happy to see those players coming in

  11. LVG! go for shaw to take evra’s part,reus for giggs,hummels for vidic,toni and vidal or rakitic in our middle dats gona be united we used to enjoy under fergi.more fire! lvg,more fire! man u,more fire! nxt season.

  12. I’m not an Arjen Robben fan… Yes he is a quality player and all that but I don’t think he’s well suited for Manchester United… I think Marco Reus would be a better alternative, given that he is still young and is 6yrs Robben’s JR…

  13. Not bein pessimistic but I dnt tink Arjen robben wld come 2 united jus coz he’s Van Gaal’s fellow country man, he cld b tempted wit huge wage tho. Strootman, hummels, indi..nice targets but y is calvalho’s name fadin frm d list. Is it coz he’s not Dutch?

  14. Van gaal is the best 4 manchester united and I hope he will get his target end of the day ,I wish him the best

  15. As we can see our defenders are leaving like vidc evra we need replacement of them
    Then we need some worldclass midfields..

  16. (4-4-2)De Gea, Jones/Rafael, Hummels/Sergio Ramos, Smailling/Evans, Leighton Baines/Luke Shaw, Robben/Valencia, Fabregas/Goetze, Mata/Kroos, Januzaj/Mueller, RVP/Diego Costa, Rooney/Cavani

  17. Louis van gaal world class coach know doubt about that he will definetely know what to do @ MAN-UNITED yes indeed the red devils as u all know hahahaha# my suggestion is sell Ashley young and bring Marco Reus dispite the other new top signings we are currently busy with, mat hummels ezequil garay luke shaw toni kroos arjen robben likay gundogan edison cavani Cesc fabregas we’ll defintely be unstoppable next season GLORY GLORY MAN_UNITED!!!! Hip Hip hooray lol
