Louis van Gaal’s attempts to rebuild Manchester United’s squad are likely to be accelerated this week, with Atlético Madrid ready to launch a bid to sign Javier Hernández and Shinji Kagawa.

United clocked up a victory over arch-rivals Liverpool on Monday night, and Van Gaal has insisted that there are key decisions to be made over the next week as the players make their return to Old Trafford.

A number of those players are set to face the axe, and there are still question marks hanging over the futures of Kagawa and Hernandez, who had suffered torrid campaigns under David Moyes last term.

Both players have been on the fringes in the past two weeks and Atlético, the La Liga winners and Champions League runners-up, are looking to rebuild their squad after losing Diego Costa and Filipe Luís to Chelsea. Defender Javier Manquillo is also poised to join Liverpool and the manager, Diego Simeone, wants Kagawa and Hernández in a deal which would total in excess of £25m.

Kagawa has likely figured that there will only be a chance for him out wide, a position which does not suit him, in Van Gaal’s new system, and Hernandez still lies behind Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and Danny Welbeck.
