Van Gaal’s January transfer plans revealed.Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal is hoping to continue his major squad overhaul at Old Trafford this January, with three more big names set to come in as three also head out of the exit door.
The Red Devils offloaded a number of their under-performers in a ruthless cull by new boss van Gaal during the summer, and it is now thought that the Dutchman is ready to continue wielding the axe, with three more big names likely to be heading out if the club can find buyers in the winter.
After finishing 7th in the Premier League last season and getting off to a bad start in 2014/15, it is clear that major changes are needed at United before they can re-establish themselves as a force of the English game again, and van Gaal is already planning for more exits and arrivals to put his own stamp on this team inherited from his predecessors David Moyes and Sir Alex Ferguson.
With a couple of surprise names chosen to be shown the door, here is van Gaal’s vision for the ideal January transfer window for United:
Out: Phil Jones
Reports today suggest that United defender Phil Jones has just four months to prove himself to van Gaal and save his Old Trafford career, with the club’s new manager already keeping a keen eye out for a world class signing at centre-back to come in in his place. Although Jones looked a terrific talent when he first arrived at United as a youngster from Blackburn Rovers, his career has not taken off since then and he is now widely seen as a versatile player without a true calling in any specific position, as well as a somewhat hot-headed and error-prone individual for one playing in defence.
