Five exciting deals that are still alive for United and Louis van Gaal.Manchester United have again endured a frustrating summer in the transfer market after only managing to bring in Luke Shaw and Ander Herrera so far, despite links to so many big-name targets.
The arrival of Louis van Gaal was expected to help bring in several world class names for the Red Devils, with many parts of the team still in need of strengthening after last season’s disastrous 7th place finish in the Premier League.
Still, United are believed to be working on finishing with a flourish before the transfer deadline, and could still land as many as five world class stars, with the help of offloading some of their unwanted squad players. See below for five players that could be lining up at Old Trafford next season if van Gaal gets his way.
5) Marcos Rojo (Sporting Lisbon)
Despite reports of complications in this deal, it still looks likely that Manchester United will snap up the highly impressive Sporting Lisbon defender Marcos Rojo this summer. The Argentine was in great form at this summer’s World Cup, and will be a highly useful signing to fill in at both centre-back and left-back, providing a replacement for Nemanja Vidic and Patrice Evra in one go. With Luke Shaw now out injured for the start of the season, the arrival of this versatile 24-year-old looks even more importsnt for the Red Devils.
