Manchester United manager reveals squad and transfer intentions

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal says that he will not just make rash decisions over his transfer plans and will only make purchases if he really needs it, SkySPORTS reports.

He could slow down any transfer proceeding in order to full review his current squad and may give chances to a few fringe players looking to impress the new boss.

“I don’t buy players for the sake of it. I buy players to improve my selection.

“First, I must see what I need in all the positions from the system we shall play and, at this moment, I don’t know for sure.”

Van Gaal also stands by his decision to revert to a 3-5-2 formation as he claims it brings out the best from his squad.

“That’s why I chose this system, I can play them all.  But (Javier) Hernandez can also play in the striker’s position, so can (Danny) Welbeck.

“Rooney can play at No 10 and No 9 and he tells me he can also play at No 11 and No 7, but I prefer him at 9 or 10.

“When you look at the quality of your players you see Rooney, Van Persie, Hernandez, Mata, Welbeck, (Marouane) Fellaini, (Ander) Herrera – a lot of players can play this system.

“So with this system, two strikers can play, the No 10 can play, two midfielders can play, so the specialists become the wingbacks.”
