The 33-year-old had been tipped to replace David de Gea if he left for Real Madrid, but Van Gaal has revealed the three-time Champions League victor will now be sold.
Schweinsteiger has done it all in his career, winning domestic and European club titles, and claiming the World Cup title last summer in Brazil. He was electric and Van Gaal would certainly have taken notice of that. After the match, LVG broke down the win and spoke on his tactics for the summer preseason tour. “We lost by a mistake, but I still feel very good about how we played”.
“I hope so. No, we are not finished yet, I think”. “When you are not willing to follow the principles of the philosophy there is only one way and that is out”.
Clues as to how van Gaal plans to weave the new arrivals into his existing squad should emerge over the next fortnight in the U.S, where United will also face games against the San Jose Earthquakes, Barcelona and Paris St-Germain. That I don’t know. And I’m a mature player. Barring some last-minute change of heart, the Sounders will be playing today’s match on the same temporary surface.
“The first surface was artificial and it had grass over it. It was always moving”. You saw a lot of players slipped.
“It was not so easy and also you can get more and more injuries”.
Old Trafford is used for football only, not One Direction concerts. It is not for entertaining.
“That was one of the first signals things weren’t going in the right direction”, Van Persie said. “In England we live for football but in U.S. they live for American football and baseball”.
“But I was still thinking we could come back from holiday and start from scratch”, he said. He must be more of a Bieber guy.
His addition would mean Van Gaal could field a forward line featuring Rooney through the middle and Pedro and Memphis Depay either side. Schneiderlin was brought in after spending seven years at Southampton and watching the club grow from lower division to being a steady Premier League participant.
