According to reports from the Manchester Evening News, Louis van Gaal is looking to make reinforcements to his Manchester United squad during the January transfer window.
Since his arrival as manager of United in the summer of 2014, van Gaal has already splashed a sizeable £250million on new players.
Despite spending such a huge amount though, United’s squad still does not look big enough to compete for either the Premier League or indeed the Champions League this season.
As a result, it has now been claimed that van Gaal is considering further strengthening his squad upon the reopening of the transfer window in January.
Van Gaal stated recently that he does not have any problems with keeping smaller squads but has admitted that the United squad currently at his disposal could do with a couple of additions.
The Dutchman said: “No it is not otherwise I would have had a bigger squad. I believe in smaller squads because you need perspective otherwise the motivation is a doubt.
“I have always preferred small selections (squads). I think I have the smallest selection in the Premier League. Last season we had 24 players.
“We sold 15 players and bought five players. This year we have sold again or have loaned players out. Ten players have gone and only six players have been bought. I think 22 players and three goalkeepers is enough so I am still one short.”
