Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has finally opened up to the media regarding his plans for Manchester United’s transfer market tactics for January. The Dutch manager insists that his purchases in the window will solely be determined by the quality of the players and not based on anything else. The Dutchman has recently signed former Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes on an 18 month loan deal and seems quite happy as he would prove to be a good competition to current first choice keeper David de Gea.

Before the start of the season, van Gaal had recruited some major signings like Luke Shaw, Ander Herrera, Daley Blind, Angel Di Maria, Marcos Rojo and Radamel Falcao after the departure of quite a few players from Old Trafford. The Dutch has seen ups and downs with the team this season and is always known to be patient in the transfer market most times.

Van Gaal, in an interview said, “When I cannot improve my selection, then I wait. And then I maybe have to wait a year more. Maybe you think that there are so many fantastic players, but it is not like that. However, I don’t necessarily prefer to wait until the summer when I can improve my selections. That I have showed with Valdes. When we can buy a player who can improve my selection, the club shall buy. Money is not interesting. It is always quality of the players in comparison with the other players that I have. I have to compare. I have to decide. Money doesn’t play any role. Now that I coach Manchester United, I expect more attacking quality. If it is not this year, then next season or the season after that. We shall improve and you shall see it.”

The United boss sure has a plan for his team. What happens next, remains to be seen as the transfer window is wide open for managers to grab the players they need to enhance their squads.
