A source close to the club claimed there is no fun or banter in training, and concern is growing that the players are unhappy.
The publication go on to say that the his training regime is dull, repetitive and does not allow the players to express themselves enough.
Van Gaal, who took over last summer, is under pressure to produce results at Old Trafford. The Red Devils have picked up seven points in their first four games, but in their previous ten league matches, they have won just three.
His transfer activity has also come under scrutiny from sections of the United faithful after some strange moves over the summer.
Having allowed Adnan Januzaj and Javier Hernandez to depart, youngster Anthony Martial was the only forward brought in, for a world record fee for a teenager.
With only three recognised strikers on the books, Van Gaal's decision to allow James Wilson to go out on loan, has caused concern that United will be left without sufficient options upfront.
The Red Devils face Liverpool next, in what could be a pivotal game in their season. Fans always expect a victory against their North West rivals and anything less could leave Van Gaal in a precarious position.
