Feyenoord have told Manchester United that they will have to almost double their offer for Daryl Janmaat if they want to sign the Dutch fullback. Van Gaal knows that the defender who has performed well at the World Cup only has one year left on his deal and have offered £4 million for his services.
However Feyenoord have told United that they value the defender closer to £7 million and have demanded that they up their offer. Van Gaal will need to up his offer to fend off Newcastle who want Janmaat to replace the departing Debuchy who looks set to join Arsenal.
Meanwhile Louis Saha has urged Van Gaal to bring Paul Pogba back to Old Trafford as the former United striker rates the up and coming midfielder higher than he used to rate Patrick Viera. Pogba who left United frustrated after Sir Alex Ferguson didn’t give him an opportunity in a United shirt.
Will Van Gaal match Feyenoord’s evaluation of the defender to beat Newcastle to his signature? We shall have to wait and see.
