Following the questions, Van Gaal responded with a simple one line of: "You are a little bit deaf" before taking a sip of his water and moving onto the next question.

The cheeky response by the Dutch manager was well received by the other journalists in the room, who laughed at the expense of the poor man.

United decided against activating the release clause of the former Barcelona man allowing him to complete a quick fire move to Stamford Bridge. But Van Gaal does seem too concerned by his sides perceived loss of a top class star.

It was revealed the Old Trafford club had table a bid for Southampton forward Sadio Mane before publicly ending their chase of Pedro.

However United have been told the Senegalese international is not for sale. United officials have also reportedly held talks with representatives of Russian international Aleksandr Kokorin over a potential move.

Despite winning their first three games of the new season, the Red Devils have not found their top form. They were better against Club Brugge than they had been in either of the Premier League matches, but will still need to improve if they want to win the title.

With a home tie against Newcastle it is expected United will make it three wins on the bounce in the top flight, but it is never that straight forward in football.
