EPLManchester United manager Louis van Gaal spent heavy cash in the summer transfer window to sign stars and still wants to further reinforce the quality of the squad with new additions.

If reports are anything to go by then Man United have taken another step towards signing highly rated youngster Youri Tielemans who currently plays for Belgian side Anderlecht.

According to Goal, Manchester United have entered into talks to sign the quality 18-year-old star next summer.

As per the provided Goal link, third party discussions were held between the two clubs over a potential transfer of Youri. However, United have to face serious competition because talks have been held with Chelsea as well.

    I wish to see Man United to have all the stars of the world. But my concern is that such stars are not going to be properly used by van Gaal. My wish is that Man United secre the services of a young strict humble manager who can make Man United tick. Van Gaal’s style is outdated and is causing Man United too much financial harm.
