Soon-to-be-announced Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has prioritised the capture of three top starlets from Holland, according to reports.
The Manchester Evening News claims that the Dutch coach is keen to raid Feyenoord for a trio of players he believes could go some way to fixing United’s current problems, and will firm up his interest with official bids as soon as he is named as boss. It’s thought that Ed Woodward is already drawing up plans for the purchases of centre-back pairing Bruno Martins Indi and Stefan de Vrij with an eye on replacing the outgoing duo of Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand, and is also monitoring midfielder Jordie Clasie who has been dubbed as the ‘new Xavi’.
The three youngsters, all aged 22, are already key members of Feyenoord's squad, but it’s believed that their current manager, Ronald Koeman, has advised them to seek moves away if they want to continue their develop in the game.
If reports are to be believed then United are very much basing their transfer strategy around the capture of youth this summer, as Southampton’s Luke Shaw is also a prominent target for the Red Devils.
