The experienced Netherlands national team trainer is expected to be officially unveiled as the successor to the recently sacked David Moyes in the Old Trafford dugout following the Oranje’s first World Cup wamr-up fixture against Ecuador at the Amsterdam ArenA on Saturday afternoon.

And it is understood that the former Ajax, FC Barcelona and Bayern boss has already handed United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward a list of possible transfer targets for when the summer transfer window does reopen for business, with the name of the highly rated Netherlands international said to be at the top of Van Gaal’s wish list.

Robben, 30, knows his compatriot well from their time working together at the Allianz Arena and is believed to be confident that an offer in the region of £25m will be enough to be able to persuade the Champions League holders to part company with the winger.
