New Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal is being tipped to axe ten members of the current first-team at Old Trafford, according to the Daily Express.

The Dutchman has been known for being something of a controversial figure throughout his career in the game, often alienating his players despite also being respected as one of the best coaches in the modern era, enjoying tremendous success at most of the teams he has managed.

After guiding the Netherlands national team to third place in this summer’s World Cup, van Gaal now looks set to make an immediate impact upon arriving at United full time, with the decision to cull ten members of the first-team squad in preparation for next season.

The Red Devils were poor for much of last season as they finished in a disastrous 7th place in the Premier League, and their new manager is seemingly unconvinced by a large selection of the personnel currently on the books.

Sent out on loan to Fiorentina for the second half of last season, it is no surprise to see that Anderson doesn’t seem to have a future at United. The Brazilian made a great start to his career at the club as a youngster, but has not taken off since then and has actually gone backwards instead, becoming something of a liability in the middle of the park. With Ander Herrera already brought in and possibly more set to follow in midfield, there will surely be no room for Anderson next season.
