The Dutchman has spent big since moving to Old Trafford last year, and already invested around £103m on Angel Di Maria, Ander Herrera and Daley Blind for that part of the pitch.

Still, when asked if he was still after a midfielder of this ilk, van Gaal said: “Yes, of course.”

Wayne Rooney has had to fill in in midfield for much of the season, and van Gaal feels he has had to play the England striker there due to a lack of alternatives.

“Of course that’s the case,” he said. “I’m looking for balance and I need it in midfield.”

AS Roma playmaker Kevin Strootman and Juventus powerhouse Paul Pogba have been mentioned as United’s two most likely targets.
