Three Dutch u21 players Van Gaal could sign for United after big win

Louis Van Gaal

We take a look at three Dutch under-21 internationals Louis van Gaal could look to sign for Manchester United as he looks to build an Old Trafford legacy.

Holland's under-21 side is recognised, by many, as one of the best in the world, which is one of the reasons Dutch coaches are so highly-regarded in the game.

A dominating 3-1 win over Luxembourg, which included Premier League representation, proved the huge array of quality the young Netherland's side have in their ranks.

We take a look at three players in the team, who aren't contracted to Premier League clubs, Louis van Gaal should look at bringing to Manchester United with him.

1) Quincy Promes

The 22-year-old was the key player on the pitch, as the young Netherlands team put a sorry Luxembourg to the sword, scoring two goals in the 3-1 win.

The attacking winger has already caught the attention of the newly appointed Manchester United boss once, earning a well-deserved call-up to the full national team to play France in a friendly match in March 2014.

The talented Dutchman has, in fact, already been touted with a possible move to Manchester United in recent weeks and could be one of many new faces expected to enter the Old Trafford entrance this summer.

2) Luc Castaignos

The 21-year-old speed merchant has been dubbed as the ‘new Thierry Henry’ in some parts world, and has already proven himself as one of the best strikers currently in the Dutch league.

The Dutch talent is by no means an unknown player to the Premier League and his performances in the past have earned him links to the likes of Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur. He has an exceptional record for the Dutch under-21s, but as of yet, he hasn’t received a call from Louis van Gaal for the senior squad.

Nevertheless, the 21-year-old could provide a pace injection to the Manchester United frontline and provide a good option off the bench, which could be important if Javier Hernandez does leave this summer.

However, Swansea City have already agreed a fee with his club FC Twente, and pending a decent medical he will soon be playing Premier League football for The Swans.

3) Tonny Trindade de Vilhena

The 19-year-old Feynoord midfielder is one of the more exciting talents in the Eredivisie and is tipped to play at the very highest level by many who watch him week in, week out.

He is another player, like Promes, that has caught the attention of Louis van Gaal previously and earned a call-up to the Netherlands national team. However, he didn’t get his chance on the pitch and therefore, he remains cap-less.

Whilst an extremely exciting talent, Feyenoord will be keen to keep the player in Holland and could ask for a big transfer fee off Manchester United if they were to want him. Nevertheless, he is certainly a name to look out for in the future, even though it is a mouthful.
