Man United transfers: Louis van Gaal gives little away when quizzed about his plans for the summer window
Louis van Gaal gave little away when quizzed about his plans for the remainder of the summer transfer window at his Manchester United unveiling.

First, I want to see the players performing my philosophy, then I will think about signing players

However, the 62-year-old, who was unveiled to the media at Old Trafford on Thursday, insists he wants to get to know his new squad before considering any future signings.
“My method is always the same,” said Van Gaal. “I want to look at the players [here] now; the players present.
“Of course I know how they play, but I don’t know the players I have coached.
“First, I want to see, in the first three or four weeks, what they can do and maybe then I will buy other players.
“Shaw and Herrera were already on the list and I gave my approval because I like them.”
He added: “First, I want to see the players performing my philosophy, then I will think about signing players.”
