The rebuilding effort of manager Louis Van Gaal started last summer when he brought some world class player to Old Trafford, this season we are seeing a consolidation in that rebuilding effort that started over 12 months ago.
With less than 120 hours left before the transfer window is shut, Mike Keegan of Daily Mail is claiming that, LVG will come off this transfer market without any purchase bar the impending sale of Jonny Evans and Victor Valdes.
The club has missed out in signing key transfer target, notably Pedro and Otamendi which led to several players linked with a move to Old Trafford with Van Gaal keen to complete various deals before the close of the window.
Nonetheless, the Daily Express suggested that LVG was readying £73 million for former Chelsea and Dutch player, Arjen Robben while the mirror are also claiming that De Gea could still be allowed to exit Old Trafford before the close of the window – but the Mail are thinking differently as they believe United will be doing no business in this summer, bar the sale of Jonny Evans and Victor Valdes.
The Red Devils bolstered their squad earlier this summer with the purchase of five players – the Mail does report that if Muller and Mane becomes available before Tuesday next week, Van Gaal might attempt a deal for them but that is highly unlikely as it is.
Jonny has been linked with a departure to West Brom (via Daily Star) and the deal is expected to be completed before the close of the window while valdes was reported involved in an altercation with Van Gaal and will leave the club sooner.
