Read more Manchester United gossip.
Manchester United’s new manager Louis van Gaal will start the day to day running of the club when he returns from the World Cup in Brazil with Holland, and the Mirror reports that the Dutch boss has demanded his club sign him four players before the end of the tournament.
These are the four that he wants wrapping up as soon as possible…
4) Yevhen Konoplyanka – Dnipro
LVG admires and rates the Ukrainian left-winger highly. He’s a big target for both Liverpool and Tottenham, but United reckon they can snare the 24-year-old even without the lure of Champions League football. However, the player himself has already irritated United fans by claiming he’s rather stay in the Ukraine than move to Old Trafford.
Artur Petroysan, editor for Russian publication Sport-Express, claimed the winger stated: “Man United? I’d rather stay at Dnipro and play in the Champions League.”
