Louis van Gaal is currently doing wonders with national side Netherlands at the World Cup and the United fans cannot wait to welcome him at Old Trafford.
The Dutch manager has all his focus on the World Cup for now but has handed the list of players he wants at Manchester United for the next season.
Two signings are completed and but that is not it. It seems that now the newly appointed coach wants United to focus on the defensive side more.
According to Daily Star, Van Gaal is closing in on to seal deals worth $29m for the Red Devils for two Dutch stars i.e. Nigel de Jong and Stefan de Vrij.
The mentioned players have been a crucial part of Holland’s world cup campaign but lately, de Jong has been ruled out of rest of the competition with injury and will recover in 2-4 weeks.
As per the provided link, United believe they can hire the services of Feyenoord defender De Vrij for just $12m which will be a huge bargain as he is expected to replace the likes of Vidic and Ferdinand.
On the other hand, Former Manchester City midfielder Nigel de Jong who currently plays for Italian side AC Milan is going to cost around $17m.
Having lured a creative midfielder in Herrera, it makes completed sense that United should focus on the defensive side of midfield as well but is De Jong the best option? United were also linked with Portuguese holding mid player William Carvalho but his price tag is very high as compared to the Dutch star.
