Manchester United in the past weeks has been heavily linked with the signing of Aston Villa striker; Christian Benteke. However, when LVG was questioned in America he did not state the striker they will be signing. Instead he has said they are in the process. The United boss said it will be a surprise. This is coming at the back of United’s 1-0 win over Club America at the weekend.
Although Van Gaal did not reveal the identity of the striker in question he stated: “He’s in the process, it’s not the striker that the media has written about. You have to wait and see.” He further state; “The transfer period is open until August 31. You have to wait.”
When questioned on the situation surrounding Sergio Ramos he replied “I cannot talk about these rumours. I have said already it’s a process and maybe Mr Ramos is in the process – you never know.” Time will tell if United will eventually land Ramos.
United have been active in the transfer market thus far and they are looking to bring in some other experienced players to join the rank of the new signing Bastian Schweinsteiger who they acquired from Bayern Munich.
