To start with, several reports suggest United have agreed to sign Holland and PSV centre-back Stefan de Vrij for £8m. Given that United only currently have three injury-prone centre-backs in the squad, bringing in a new one is seen as a necessity for Louis van Gaal this summer.
Elsewhere, Tom Cleverley is once again being linked with a move to Everton. Although he has faltered in recent years, some consider Van Gaal the perfect type of manager who Cleverley could thrive under.
United target Alexis Sanchez was on red-hot form in Chile’s dramatic penalty shoot-out defeat to and reports from France suggest he is on his way to Arsenal.
Looking forward to the pre-season, Ryan Giggs will take charge of United training until Van Gaal returns from the World Cup, so he’ll be showing new signings Shaw and Herrera the ropes at Carrington.
