Louis van Gaal has hinted that he could further bolster his Manchester United squad before Monday’s transfer deadline.

United concluded their fourth signing of the summer on Tuesday after securing the services of Angel di Maria from Real Madrid for a British record fee of £57.9m.

Ed [Woodward] is doing the transfer market. I don’t interfere in that process

The Red Devils continue to be linked with a host of players, including the likes of Daley Blind and Arturo Vidal – but Van Gaal says he cannot offer any guarantees about United’s remaining business, including those who could leave the club.

“I have given players a chance to move or not before 1 September – it is their choice,” said Van Gaal on Friday. “I don’t think it was good that I came as manager and I want 11 new players – I have given players a chance here. This process needs time.”

The Dutchman, whose side travel to Burnley on Saturday, continued: “I don’t know about transfers between now and Monday because I am not the one who can choose. I give my opinion and the player can do what he wants with that opinion.

“Of course I shall say which players I want and which are better to leave and Ed [Woodward] is doing the transfer market. I don’t interfere in that process.”

Di Maria is United’s fourth signing of the summer, with the Red Devils having bought left-back Luke Shaw, midfielder Ander Herrera and defender Marcos Rojo for a combined £72m.
