Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has insisted that he will speak with certain figures at the club over potential signings and departures over the course of this weekend and Monday. 

As reported by the Manchester Evening News, Van Gaal, who is set to take charge of the club for the final time this season at the KC Stadium against Hull City tomorrow afternoon, has hinted that there will be a number of changes at the club over the coming weeks and months. 

In fact, Van Gaal blasted the transfer window as 'ridiculous', claiming that it shouldn't be open at the start of the new season. 

Clearly, then, the United boss wants to get his business sorted sooner rather than later, as he revealed that talks will take place in the immediate future. 

Transfer talks 

Van Gaal told reporters: “I shall talk with them maybe tomorrow. We have a farewell drink after the match. I have the Monday to talk, and I already have this week to talk. You have to wait and see how these talks develops over who is staying or going away.

“The transfer window ends on August 31 and that’s ridiculous in my opinion. I have strived many times to change the transfer period,” he said.

“It has to be finished before you prepare your team for the season. Last year we had the World Cup and then a lot of players came late into our club.

"We had a lot of purchases at the last month so we have to prepare our team while playing in the Premier League and that costs us a lot of points. This time I hope we shall finish that much earlier.”

Expect changes 

One thing's for sure, big changes at Old Trafford are expected this summer. At the end of the day, the club's hierarchy will be pleased that the club are set to play in the Champions League next season, but they will no doubt be hoping to push on in 2015/16. 

United must go all out to win silverware, so must improve in all areas of the pitch. It looks set to be an exciting transfer period for the Red Devils faithful, and Van Gaal seems determined to get down to business.
