Van Gaal can splash United cash in January

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has been told that further transfer funds are available should he wish to add to his squad during the next transfer window, according to The Daily Star.

The Red Devils were notably big spenders during the summer after van Gaal’s arrival in the Old Trafford hotseat.

Ander Herrer was first to arrive from Athletic Bilbao for around £30 million, followed by Southampton’s Luke Shaw for almost £32 million. Argentina international Marcos Rojo joined from Sporting Lisbon for £16 million, before they paid out a whopping £59.5 million to secure the services of Ángel di María from Real Madrid.

Finally on transfer deadline day Radamel Falcao arrived on an initial £6 million loan deal, and was joined by Daley Blind who signed from Ajax for around £14.5 million.

But van Gaal has been told by the United board that further funds will be made available in January should he feel that his squad is still not up to scratch as he bids to return them to the summit of English football. He has reportedly already targeted AS Roma’s Dutch international midfielder Kevin Strootman, although Strootman’s agent confirmed that there had not yet been any contact from Manchester.

United endured a torrid introduction to life without their talismanic manager Sir Alex Ferguson, going trophy-less in 2013/14 and finishing seventh in the Premier League, thus missing out on European competition for this season.
