Dutch coach Louis van Gaal has told Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward who his prime targets for the club are this summer. 

As reported by The Guardian, Van Gaal - who looks set to become United's new manager in the near future - has told Woodward that he wants to bring the likes of Bayern Munich duo Arjen Robben and Thomas Muller to the club as well as Borussia Dortmund defender Mats Hummels. 

Reports have also suggested that Van Gaal has given the club the green light to sign Southampton full-back Luke Shaw and another Bayern star Toni Kroos. 

The Bayern Munich trio of Muller, Kroos and Robben have all enjoyed great success in Germany in recent time, and it remains to be seen as to whether the Red Devils can tempt them to the Premier League. 

The latter - Robben - has worked under Van Gaal in the Dutch national side, which could help Manchester United's move for him. 

It has been well documented that Manchester United have already made a move for England starlet Shaw, as they go in search of a long term Patrice Evra replacement. Reports have even indicated that United will make an improved offer of £30 million for the highly rated full-back.

And finally, Mats Hummels could be seen as the man to replace the departing Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic.

Van Gaal, of course, will be concentrating on the World Cup, but Manchester United officials look set for a busy summer.
