Manchester United media round-up: Van Gaal explains why he's happy with new signings

A round up of news stories this morning related to Manchester United.

Louis van Gaal has told the club’s official website that he’s happy with the calibre of the players the club has signed so far.

Manchester United have been very active in the transfer market, with their most recent deals for central midfielders Morgan Schneiderlin and Bastian Schweinsteiger.

He’s claimed that the club are now in a much better position than the one they found themselves in this time last year.

“I'm very happy because, in my opinion, they are very good players - I'm very happy they're here before the tour – we can prepare all the team elements with them,” he told

Bastian Schweinsteiger has been quoted by explaining the main reason behind his decision to move to Old Trafford.

The German midfielder has explained that he simply wants to win Premier League titles with the team consistently.

He’s suggested that it’s something United have grown used to over the past few seasons and success they need to achieve again.

“It is a big honour. It's a new step in my life. I want to win titles, it's easy. Manchester United is used to that and I am too, so that's my goal,” he said.

The Daily Express has reported that Louis van Gaal is set to hand Javier Hernandez another chance to impress at Manchester United.

The Mexican’s future at the club seemed to be in doubt after he spent last season on loan with Real Madrid.

However, Robin Van Persie’s exit from United means it’s more difficult for the manager to let Hernandez leave, with his attacking options already thin.

“When you play a system with two strikers or one striker then you [have to] make decisions and I let Chicharito go but now he is coming back,” said the boss.
