The new Manchester United manager, Louis van Gaal, is in a better place than most to judge the talent on display in Brazil at the World Cup.

The Dutchman knows that once his World Cup is over with the Netherlands national side, he will have his work cut out to reinvigorate Man United after their abysmal 2013-14 campaign.

The club are believed to be willing to allow van Gaal a transfer budget in excess of £200 million to help the club back towards the top of the table. Van Gaal will consider the World Cup a chance to assess the credentials of those players he has on his lengthy wish list.

Man United’s squad is in desperate need of a re-shuffle now, so here’s a look at 25 stars van Gaal could take a punt on this summer.
