Louis van Gaal has admitted it will be a rough summer for multiple players at Manchester United but says it is necessary for Manchester United to do.
Last season there were 14 exits from Man United in total on either permanent or loan moves and it is expected to be another extremely busy summer for United in the transfer window.
A host of players including (but not limited to) Jonny Evans, Nani and Javier Hernandez face uncertain futures at the club and Van Gaal may well decide to let them all leave.
Speaking at Man United’s end of season awards, Van Gaal said: “It will be a rough summer for a lot of players but a club like Manchester United have to do that.”
Clearing out the deadwood is a necessary evil and a manager of Van Gaal’s experience won’t have any problem in letting a player know he isn’t part of his plans.
Sir Alex Ferguson always said it was one of the hardest parts of the job and no doubt Van Gaal will be the same but to be a top class manager, you have to make tough decisions.
