The Dutch manager believes that he will be better able to entice big name signings to the club once the season is over. The 63-year-old also thinks that his squad is improving as it is, despite a disappointing start to the season. The Red Devils are currently on thirteen points, half that of league leaders Chelsea.

Van Gaal is still interested in Roma midfielder Kevin Strootman, but is willing to wait until the summer to see if his return from a knee injury goes smoothly. Whether he would actually be able to sign the Dutch international is another matter, as both the player’s manager Rudi Garcia and chairman James Pallotta have said that he is not for sale.

Mats Hummels is apparently also on United’s radar, but his club Borussia Dortmund are more likely to let him go in the summer.
