Van Gaal refuses to rule out possibility of late deals

Louis van Gaal has refused to rule out the possibility of more ins and outs at Manchester United before Tuesday’s transfer deadline.

United have been linked with late moves for Thomas Muller, Arjen Robben, Gareth Bale and Felipe Anderson.

There could also be outgoings with reports on Friday night that West Bromwich Albion have agreed a £6m fee for Jonny Evans and speculation out-of-favour Victor Valdes is heading to Besiktas.

There is also still a chance David De Gea could finally get his move to Real Madrid.

Van Gaal was asked repeatedly at his press conference on Friday about whether United will do any more business in the next five days.

And the Dutchman refused to rule out any more transfers and insisted the club would make announcements when any deals are completed.

He said: “We shall do announcements when we want to do it not when you want an answer.”

Asked again later, he replied: “The same as your colleague. When we want to do announcements we shall do it.”
