Van Gaal didn’t specify whether a loan was out of the question.
They continue to insist that his “conscience is completely clear”, that he has “trained to the highest possible level” and he is said to be increasingly baffled by Van Gaal’s claims. I have one assistant coach and another assistant coach so we speak about that kind of thing.

“I always consider who is saying these things and then I know why”, Van Gaal said. It is a process.
The BBC have cited sources close to de Gea to suggest that he has never told anyone he didn’t want to play for United against Tottenham last week, or against Aston Villa this week. I think we have to pay attention to it and develop, but it can not cost so many points as last year, that is the main object.
It was a freaky episode that caught everyone by surprise.
Manchester United goalkeeper and Real Madrid target David de Gea has been dropped for the second consecutive game.
Van Gaal also responded to criticism from former Bulgaria global Hristo Stoichkov, who played under him at Barcelona. It’s a risk that United can not afford in more ways than one.
Time for your daily David de Gea update.
