Manchester United lack top quality strikers and Van Gaal for now is wasting time while other clubs snatch players.
As previously published, the Red Devils have lost out on no less than five top targets to Serie A sides and the list includes star striker Mario Mandzukic.
According to latest reports, the Atletico Madrid forward has finally agreed $20million deal to join Serie A champions Juventus.
Daily Star has mentioned the references of Italian sources La Stampa and Gazzetta dello Sport. On the other hand, Goal also provided the news of agreed deal mentioning the source of Sky Italia.
The former Bayern Munich star scored 20 goals for the La Liga side last season and becomes second star forward to sign for Juventus this summer after Paulo Dybla signed for the Old Lady from Palermo.
Not to forget, even Dybala was targeted by Manchester United.
Wayne Rooney was the only in form striker for the Red Devils last season but the captain can single-handedly cannot lead United to win the Premier League title.
With Van Persie past his best, United must sign a top quality striker sooner rather than later to challenge the best of teams next season.
