The new Manchester United boss, Louis van Gaal, has a lot of work on his hands this summer. Before assuming the day-to-day responsibilities of the job vacated by David Moyes, he will lead the Netherlands at the World Cup.

With the suggestion that United are preparing to splash out this summer, in order to compensate for their seventh-placed Premier League finish this season, van Gaal will be looking to be on the lookout for players to strengthen his shaky squad.

Rumours have done the rounds that he is keen to add a number of his fellow countrymen to the United squad. But they won’t be the only ones who may be looking to impress.

With a ‘warchest’ speculated to be between £150-200 million, here are EIGHT players who could play their way to a Manchester United contract.
