There came a time when I did not have a good relationship with Van Gaal and that influences much in a player’s mind.
Last season, Van Gaal positioned Antonio Valencia as a supporting right-back as he wasn’t that impressed with Rafael Da Silva.
Multiple media reports said that although Valdes was named to the Premier League squad, he looks unlikely to be involved soon.
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has shown his failure again by refusing to commit to buying David de Gea in future from Manchester United. Yet despite Van Gaal having dropped him for the first five matches of the campaign following questions over the Spaniard’s focus the manager has no long-standing issue with De Gea.
“I saw that United had not taken the next step (in signing me) and I needed a team to start the season with”, he added.
The 2015 summer transfer window has closed and defending Premier League champions Chelsea seems to be looking for more as they try to improve their state in the current 2015-2016 English season.
Chicharito left Manchester United just before deadline day and has already made his Bayer Leverkusen debut. Interest in his signature did not appear widespread, however, and a potential move to Besiktas collapsed at a very late stage following the club’s decision to pull out of the agreement.
“Van Gaal likes a pacey ball-carrier – he had Arjen Robben at Bayern Munich and tried and failed to make Angel di Maria that man at United – and Martial fits the bill”.
“I don’t want to say anything drastic about what we will do”, Del Bosque, who has hinted De Gea will not be selected if he is not playing regularly, told Spanish radio.
None of this helps the cause of Wayne Rooney, who is suffering a crisis of confidence, I believe, and if you ignore his hat-trick against Club Brugge, has endured a dispiriting goal return.
“That combined with the possibility to live in London was what made me decide”.
“If they do not want him to play then he needs to move for the sake of his career”.
