With just 24 days to go until the start of the new Premier League season, Manchester United fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are feeling the excitement more than most.
There is an eagerness amongst the supporters to see their team put the wrongs of last season to bed and get back to winning ways in the manner they have become so accustomed to.
And the general feeling amongst supporters at present is that Louis van Gaal looks the man best equipped to do just that.
The Dutchman was impressive at his first press conference, whilst his track record speaks for itself.
Fresh from guiding the Netherlands to third place at the summer’s World Cup in Brazil, van Gaal revealed he is set to assess his squad during pre-season before deciding on new arrivals.
Ander Herrera and Luke Shaw have so far completed moves to Old Trafford for a combined fee of £60 million and further newcomers are expected before the season starts – with a new centre back and central midfielder the most pressing issues for supporters.
But with the new season just 24 days away, we have taken a look at how van Gaal’s strongest eleven may look at present.
