Louis van Gaal is looking to bring in three of his fellow countrymen as part of his moves to re-shuffle his Old Trafford pack according to the Daily Star.

The Man United manager hopes to sign three members of the Dutch national team this summer, moves that could cost the Premier League side around £60m.

Van Gaal wants to snap up adaptable Ajax star Daley Blind, the 24 year old valued at around £20m, with the utility player able to fill roles in defence as well as being able to effectively work in a defensive midfield role as well.

Having won four successive Eredivisie titles Blind may feel this summer is the opportune time for a fresh challenge.

Louis van Gaal will look to Feyenoord youngster Stefan de Vrij to help fill the void left by the departures of veteran pair Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand.

The 22 year old has arguably outgrown his De Kuip side and his superb World Cup displays could well help to fuel a move to Man United, a move that may cost just £10m as the player is into the final year of his current contract.

The third member of this trio could arguably prove the most expensive, and most difficult, to secure.

Man United have targeted midfielder Kevin Strootman in recent transfer windows but fail to prevent the box to box performer from completing his move to AS Roma last summer.

Van Gaal will look to sign the 24 year old, even though the former PSV Eindhoven man is currently out with a long term injury. This source believes such a move could cost as much as £30m.

Man United chief executive Ed Woodward has been tasked with the job of landing the trio having already secured the signings of Ander Herrera and Luke Shaw from Athletic Bilbao and Southampton respectively.
