Louis van Gaal, Manchester United manager, has revealed that he has still successfully rebuild the squad and he needs to buy star players to bolster his squad. The Dutch manager said that even though he has quality players like Ashley Young who had a decent season last time, the team needs to sign players like Eden Hazard, Oscar, Neymar, Messi, etc to acually compete at the highest level.

Manchester United finished 17 points below champions Chelsea last season. Van Gaal said that he will have to go after big names to erase that gap in the coming season. 

Daily Mail quoted Louis van Gaal: ‘We only have a better balance of the team. It’s not my Manchester United yet.

‘Why? Because we have to look for more balance in the team and for more creativity. For example, Chelsea have Eden Hazard, Willian and Oscar. There is a lot of creativity there. Manchester City have Sergio Aguero, it’s the same type.

‘Barcelona has Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez. We have to look also for that kind of player.

‘We look for more creativity and when it is possible to buy for a reasonable price players from that level we shall do that.

‘You can expect things from Ashley Young. He had a fantastic season. But he is not a Neymar and we have to compete with that kind of class.’

Louis van Gaal had mentioned a few weeks back that he is hopeful for a surprise signing. The team have already signed a big name Bastian Schweinsteiger and quality players like Morgan Schneiderlin, Memphis Depay, Matteo Darmian and Sergio Romero. 

Top stars like Cristiano Ronaldo, Thomas Muller, Edinson Cavani and Robert Lewandowski are linked with the Red Devils.
