Man United ready to take summer transfer tally to six

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has revealed that the club are targeting at least two more summer additions despite their recent business.

The Red Devils’ recent acquisitions of Bastian Schweinsteiger, Morgan Schneiderlin and Matteo Darmian have taken the number of fresh faces at Old Trafford to four, with Memphis Depay having joined from PSV Eindhoven prior to the official opening of the window.

United are currently heavily linked with star names such as Edinson Cavani and Sergio Ramos, with a centre-back and a striker seemingly issues given the exits of Radamel Falcao and Robin van Persie and the shaky showings produced by the likes of Phil Jones and Chris Smalling last term.

And Van Gaal has now confirmed that at least two more additions are needed, with a couple of areas of his squad still not up to scratch:

“We are not finished yet, I think,” he told MUTV. “It is what I have said already in many press conferences. We need a balance in the selection and I think we still need to improve at least two positions and we shall do that when it is possible.

“But we shall only buy when the player can give a contribution to our level. And, of course, that is in the eyes of our staff, but I have to have confidence that he can cope with the rhythm of the Premier League.”

Van Gaal oversaw a £150m mega spend last summer, which included a club record move for Angel di Maria.
