Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has told reporters that he is still in no rush to make further additions to his Manchester United squad, and is prepared to give a chance to the players already at his disposal.
Daily Mail reports suggest the Dutchman still wishes to further assess his current squad, starting with the club’s Premier League opener against Swansea City today.
The Old Trafford side have already added Athletic Bilbao midfielder Ander Herrera and full-back Luke Shaw this summer, while they have been regularly linked with the likes of Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal, Fiorentina winger Juan Cuadrado and Sportling Lisbon defender Marcos Rojo.
“I know I already have a good team and I am very pleased with the squad,’ Van Gaal told United’s official website. “I still have more assessing to do but I don’t buy players for buying players’ sake. I buy players to improve my selection.
“I want to assess my team and I can only judge when I am the trainer-coach. And I transfer my philosophy and I know how they perform my philosophy. That is what I am doing.
“Not only with the players that have trained and played football in the United States, but now I give these other players a chance for two weeks. I think that is honest. Then we have to wait and wait. You can buy a player in 24 hours, believe me. That is not a problem.”
