Jamie Carragher: Why Man United shouldn’t give Louis van Gaal £250m transfer funds

Jamie Carragher explains why Louis van Gaal doesn't deserve another £250m to spend this summer

Jamie Carragher says Louis van Gaal doesn’t deserve to be Manchester United manager if the Dutchman requires another £250m to turn the Red Devils into Premier League title winners.

The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager has already spent heavily over two summers since he was named as David Moyes’s replacement at Old Trafford in May 2014.

The 20-time English champions will finish outside the Premier League’s top four for the second time in three seasons after Manchester City got a point against Swansea City.

Van Gaal is facing an uncertain future at Old Trafford amid reports that axed Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho could replace the Dutchman at the end of the season.

Speaking to Sky Sports on Tuesday, former Liverpool defender insisted that whatever happens Van Gaal doesn’t deserve another £250m to spurge on new signings following his recent transfer record.

“Well if he does need £250m, it means Louis van Gaal shouldn’t be there. You can’t spend as much money as he has done. He has been there for two years. It doesn’t feel like it is improving,” Carragher said.
