Louis van Gaal is an innovator, always making adjustments to stay ahead. And in recent reports, the Dutch coach is said to be bringing his 3-4-3 formation with him to Old Trafford next season in a bid to take Manchester United back to the summit of the Premier League.

With van Gaal still at the World Cup with the Netherlands, it’s a good idea to release this information to the staff at United so as they can adequately prepare on the transfer front. A shift in formation will give the club plenty to work with in identifying targets that need to be acquired in the coming months.

With a host of small fires needing to be extinguished at Old Trafford by the new manager, this system will help to address glaring problems.

This article will explore the five things that can be expected from van Gaal’s 3-4-3 formation at Old Trafford.
