Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal could continue his raid on PSV Eindhoven with the signing of Georginio Wijnaldum, according to reports.

The Red Devils completed the capture of star winger Memphis Depay from the Eredivisie outfit last week and The Mirror reports van Gaal now has his sights set on the 24-year-old PSV skipper.
Wijnaldum is somewhat of a plan B for van Gaal after doubts were placed over the career of Roma midfielder Kevin Strootman following a second serious injury.
Like Depay, Wijnaldum played under van Gaal for Netherlands at the 2014 FIFA World Cup and is believed to be interested in a move to the Premier League.
Wijnaldum admitted he would like to work under van Gaal again, saying he was thankful toward the Dutchman after the veteran manager selected him in the World Cup squad despite missing a bulk of the previous season through injury.
“Of course I would like to work with him (Van Gaal) again. I worked really fine with him and he is a great man,” he is quoted as saying by Sunday Express.
“He gave me the opportunity to play in a World Cup after seven months out injured and I am thankful for that.”
Wijnaldum impressed for PSV in its title-winning season, hitting the back of the net 13 times in 31 appearances.
The 18-times capped Dutch international has also reportedly attracted interest from Liverpool, but it now seems United are in the box seat to sign the ex-Feyenoord man.
