Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal is set to launch a £100m summer spending spree after being unimpressed with his team’s narrow 3-2 friendly victory over Roma.
The Sunday Sun has claimed that the new United boss has determined that he needs further additions this summer, following an evaluation of his ‘unbalanced’ squad.
