Van Gaal still after more signings

Manchester United fans are set for an exciting end to this summers transfer window, as Dutch boss Louis Van Gaal has revealed that he expects more potential arrivals at Old Trafford.

During his recent press conference, where new signing Angel Di Maria was unveiled, Van Gaal has talked up the chances of new signings, with the club in desperate need for midfield and defensive stars to amount a challenge for the top four this season.  

“I cannot say anything about that [the market] because it will raise the price,” he stated. “The club shall come, like now with Di Maria, when the time is right to announce it. We cannot react to every rumour.”

“Also, players shall go in the meantime. I had a conversation with the players after lunch and I said, after this weekend, we shall maybe have another group. Players will go away and others will come in. We have to wait and see.”

Van Gaal admitted any more incoming moves would rely on clubs willing to do business during the final few days of the transfer window but his targets are keen to head to Manchester.

“Now, I have also judged all of the players,” he explained. “After [doing] that, I can take my measures and, of course, we know already in advance what players we want. Sometimes you can have them and sometimes not. It is dependable on the club, more the club than the players because the players want to come.”
