Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal scouting players ahead of next season

by Ben Topliss

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has confirmed he has been scouting players ahead of next season.

The Dutchman has overseen a strong end to the campaign in which Man United have won six Premier League games in a row.

However, van Gaal and his staff are also working on how to improve the team next season.

Analysing potential signings and United players out on loan have been high on the 63-year-old’s list of priorities, as has the planning of the team’s pre-season tour of the United States.

Speaking about his future plans, van Gaal said: ”Already in January [we began thinking about the 2015/16 season] because we have to prepare our pre-season and Manchester United will go to America.

“The aim is of course that we have to train and not only to play matches. Already for three or four months we are talking about our pre-season.

“We also think about the scouting of players, the scouting of our own players because we have a lot on loan and then we have to analyse their performances, so it’s a lot of work. It’s not only the present season but also what we have to decide for players next season.”

It is an exciting time for United fans as the team’s good form has given them huge confidence heading into next season.

Champions League football is looking like a distinct possibility in the next campaign and players such as Mats Hummels and Memphis Depay have been linked with moves to Old Trafford. With van Gaal at the helm, fans cannot wait for United to begin next year’s assault on the Premier League title.
