Manchester United fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are preparing for a busy week ahead with Louis van Gaal set to be officially unveiled as the new boss on Thursday.
The Dutchman has refused a holiday after guiding the Netherlands to a third-placed finish at the World Cup and wants to set about the rebuilding job at Old Trafford as quickly as possible.
‘Rebuild’ became a phrase strongly associated with Manchester United last season.
But when you consider David Moyes spent over £60 million on Maraoune Fellaini and Juan Mata last season and the club have splashed another £60 million already this summer on Luke Shaw and Ander Herrera – is there really that much work to be done?
United have one of the largest and most expensively assembled squads in the country and now they have a manager the class of Louis van Gaal on board, you can expect a hell of a lot better than last seasons’ shocking seventh-placed finish.
The midfield proved a weakness last season, but the signing of Herrera from Athletic Bilbao is sure to give United an extra cutting edge.
Here we have taken a look at five possible midfield combinations, now the Spanish schemer is on board.
