Louis Van Gaal certainly has a lot on his plate this summer. After guiding Holland as far as he possibly can in the World Cup, the 62-year-old must then oversee a hectic summer recruitment drive at Manchester United. With a warchest reported in some circles to be as substantial as £200 million, the Dutchman has already been linked with some of European football’s finest talents.

If the reports are to be believed, van Gaal has already identified Bastian Schweinsteiger as his main summer target. With Pep Guardiola having concerns over the 29 year old’s ability to recycle possession quick enough, a fee in the region of £25 million may be enough to tempt Bayern Munich to sell.

Whilst convincing Schweinsteiger to move to Old Trafford would be a real coup, the German won’t solve all of United’s midfield troubles single-handedly. With that in mind, here are EIGHT more midfielders at the World Cup that could follow the German to United this summer.
