By: Sihle Makhowana
Manchester United have gone deep in their pockets to sign quality players on their attemp to salvage their pride this coming 2015/2016 season.
Having not featured in last season’s Uefa Champions League under the rein of Scottish coach, David Moyes, the United’s management have brought in fresh blood at Old Trafford.
The Dutchman has acquired the services of former Bayern Munich captain, Bastian Schweinsteiger, PSV Eindhoven winger, Memphis Depay, Morgan Schneiderlin from Southampton, Matteo Darmian from Torino and Sergio Romero from Sampdoriad.
Speculations of interest in the Spaniard and Barcelona forward Pedro have been circulating and with Van Gaal’s style of play in mind which involves pace and skill it would be nosurprise if these were true.
However, Angel Di Maria’s future at Old Trafford seems uncertain, with the French League 1 champions PSG showing great interest in the Argentinian. If the move goes through, Van Gaal will fall a step back in his plans for the team.
Manchester United’s fans had plenty to say about the arrival of new faces in the team, with many praising the signing of German captain and former Bayern Munich captain, Bastian Schweinsteiger.
“These signings will help steer united back to silver wear winning ways and this season we sure look fit to challenge the Barclays title and we can also be counted amongst top contenders for the Champions League,” said Avaran Van Niekerk a United’s long serving fan.
With such quality in Van Gaal’s squad the United fans are sure to be glued to their screens.
The league commences this weekend and Man U will welcome Tottenham Hotspurs at Old Trafford.
