Manchester United have just completed their pre-season tour of America, and new manager Louis van Gaal has led his new side to five wins from five.

He hardly pulled up any trees during his last Premier League campaign with Villa, but performed superbly under van Gaal during the World Cup with the Dutch, which has seen his stock meteorically rise. Vlaar also excelled in the 3-5-2 formation, in which he was the middle defender of the three centre-backs.
