The experienced Netherlands international trainer was finally confirmed in his new role at the Theatre of Dreams on Monday following the sacking of previous Red Devils manager David Moyes last month.

However, Van Gaal will not officially take over in the north west until after the end of this summer’s Fifa World Cup finals in Brazil, although that delay has seemingly not stopped the Dutchman from already compiling a short list of possible transfer targets that he wants his new employers to go after between now and July..

And at the top of that wish list is the name of PSV’s highly rated Netherlands international, a player Van Gaal knows only too well having selected Depay to be part of his 23-man squad for the World Cup after the 20-year-old managed to register an impressive 12 goals and eight assists in his 32 Eredivisie outings for his club in the previous campaign.
