Louis van Gaal: Manchester United are in for a busy summer

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal believes the club are in for a busy summer as they prepare to offload and bring in a number of players.

Man United have been strongly linked with the likes of Mats Hummels, Ilkay Gundogan, Paul Pogba and Gareth Bale in recent weeks.

Meanwhile, players such as Radamel Falcao, Robin van Persie and David de Gea face uncertain futures at the club.

Van Gaal confirmed United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward will be busy sorting out the player’s situations while he goes on holiday.

When asked about United’s summer plans, van Gaal said: “For me, that is why I am the manager. You have to decide which players are to go and which have to come.

“That is a process. It is not so easy. It is waiting for clubs to agree or not. It is hard work, but more for Ed Woodward than me. I go on holiday but I will always be in contact.”

It is exciting for fans to hear of potential arrivals but the reality is that United face a period of transition as they settle in.

It is important that the club addresses the uncertainty quickly in order to give the squad the best possible chance of gelling. United left it late with the signings of Angel di Maria and Falcao last summer and made a poor start to the season as a result.
