After guiding the Netherlands at the 2014 World Cup experienced manager Louis van Gaal will take over officially as David Moyes’ successor at Manchester United.

The 62-year-old has a tough task on his hands after the Red Devils finished with their lowest ever Premier League points tally in 2013/14 and no European football for the first time since 1981.

However, having guided FC Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Ajax to varied successes in the past van Gaal certainly has the required CV and the Dutchman will be looking to put his own stamp on the squad with new transfers.

One key area for recruitment is in central midfield, where United lacked creativity and potency last season and here are five new players the club are targeting this summer.

This Portugal international has been a long-term target for the team, with Moyes scouting the 22-year-old on several occasions in a bid to land him.

The Scot may have gone, but the interest remains, although van Gaal will have to pay a premium price for the Sporting star.
