Experienced coach Van Gaal may well have secured FA Cup silverware at Wembley on Saturday, but he has endured a topsy-turvy time at Old Trafford.

United unrest 

But, according to The Guardian, failure to secure a place in Europe's elite competition, hasn't been Van Gaal's only issue in Manchester. 

It certainly appears that there has been some unrest in the changing room, with the aforementioned trio seemingly unhappy under his regime. 

Carrick, 34, will see his contract run out at the Theatre of Dreams shortly, but it appears that he could now stay on at the club.

De Gea, who almost departed United in favour of a move to Spanish giants Real Madrid last summer, was reportedly ready to leave if Van Gaal was set to see out the final year of his three-year contract.

Then there's Herrera, who has endured a tricky couple of years at United. The Spaniard has quickly established himself as a fans' favourite but hasn't been able to secure a regular place in the starting XI. He was an unused substitute during the club's FA Cup victory over Crystal Palace. 


Mourinho changes 

Mourinho, then, has a number of decisions to make at United as he goes in search of changing the dynamic of the side. Certain players will surely leave, but fans of the club will also be hoping to see a number of top quality additions arrive.
