Manchester United manager was coy when asked about the future of midfielder Darren Fletcher, amid rumours that West Brom are looking to sign him, reports Sky
Van Gaal responded: “He is a Manchester United player and that’s the update I can give,” when asked about the future of the Scotland international. The 30-year-old has only made five starts in all competitions, and has only started once in the league back in August.
The long-serving combative midfielder has struggled to force his way into the starting eleven this season, due to the stiff competition for places, and a number of clubs have enquired about his services as a result. West Brom manager Tony Pulis admitted Fletcher was a player on their shortlist, and is keen to make a deal work this month for him.
