The 63-year-old is of the opinion that finishing third in the English top tier in 2014/15 is a realistic target for the club.

It has not been a good start for van Gaal at Old Trafford however, with two defeats and two draws from his four games in charge so far.

United opened with a shock 2-1 defeat at home to Swansea City, before league draws with Sunderland and Burnley and a 4-0 hammering in the Capital One Cup at the hands of League One side MK Dons.

Yet the Red Devils have also spent a record £151.7m on new talent this summer, with Luke Shaw, Ander Herrera, Marcos Rojo, Angel di Maria, Daley Blind and Radamel Falcao all coming in.

Of those only di Maria has actually played for the side as yet and there could be some significan improvements once all of their talent is filtered in to van Gaal’s regime.
