The Telegraph have managed to get a few of our Manchester United fans looking up with alarm here in the Football Transfer Tavern after claiming that manager Louis van Gaal is growing increasingly unpopular with the players.
The United boss has angered members of the first team with his treatment of players and rigid approach to tactics and training, and it is even thought that senior players like Wayne Rooney and Michael Carrick have spoken to the manager about that.
The squad is thought to be unhappy with the treatment and sale of Rafael Da Silva in particular, and also the fact that Van Gaal has frozen out members of the side – with the Spanish contingent thought to be increasingly unhappy.
Despite this, David De Gea looks like penning a new deal at the club, and we think that is a huge coup for Van Gaal.
Manchester United fans. Is this just teething issues or is there a bigger problem? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
