On the subject of interest in bringing in his compatriots van Gaal stated;

“Dutch players are usually cheaper than players of other nationalities and they have usually been very well educated in the Netherlands, I believe.

“If they are at the level I want them to be, then I will sign Dutch players.”

This comes amid speculation linking Daley Blind, Kevin Strootman and Nigel de Jong to Man United, with van Gaal perhaps looking to bring in further additons before the summer transfer window slams shut.
