The Daily Mirror have finally given Manchester United fans something to smile about here in the Football Transfer Tavern.
This is after the publication claimed that Louis van Gaal has banished three players from the first team.
The Dutchman does not do anything by halves and it seems that he has now taken lessons from Andre Villas-Boas after not only sending Anderson, Nani and Wilfried Zaha away from first team training but also group meals, first team meetings and time spent together.
As one of our punters claims, that is the clearest indication yet that the new Red Devils manager will not let players who are no where near the standard of United linger on and make a living in the first team.
Anderson simply has to leave the club and we think that an Old Trafford exit for Nani would be ideal for both the player and van Gaal but Zaha could be handed a chance, even if it comes in the form of a loan move back to former club Crystal Palace.
Manchester United fans. Do you think that these three deserve to be outcast? Is van Gaal being unfair? Let us know your thoughts below.
