Louis van Gaal says that Manchester United's pre-season tour is the perfect chance to impress him
Louis van Gaal has told Manchester United’s young players that the club’s pre-season tour is the perfect opportunity to impress him ahead of the new Premier League season.
The Red Devils are set to travel to the US ahead of the new season to take on Club America, San Jose Earthquakes and Paris Saint-Germain as they begin their preparations for the 2015-16 campaign.
And Van Gaal says that he is planning to give his whole squad the chance to prove their worth to him as the Dutchman looks to transform his side into genuine Premier League title contenders next season.
Speaking to Manchester United’s website, Van Gaal said: “You always get chances, especially in pre-season, and if you grab that chance then maybe you the possibility to join our first-team squad next season.
“I shall take a lot of youngsters with us to the USA and they have the chance to show themselves and then we shall wait and observe how they can develop.”
Van Gaal, who was appointed as David Moyes’ permanent successor last year, led United to a fourth-placed finish in his first season in charge at the club.
The Red Devils have already signed Memphis Depay from PSV Eindhoven as Van Gaal looks to bolster his squad ahead of the new season.
