Manchester United earlier on Saturday announced a deal to sign Bastian Schweinsteiger from Bayern Munich.
The 25-year-old versatile defender started all of Italy’s matches at last summer’s World Cup in Brazil.
United boss Van Gaal is thought to be on the lookout for defensive reinforcements as he looks to transform his Red Devils side into genuine Premier League title contenders next season.
The 20-time English champions finished in fourth place last season and sealed their return to the Champions League.
United kick off their Premier League campaign with a home clash against Tottenham next month.
