Some media sources suggesting Van Gaal has pretty much got the job, and others stating that Ryan Giggs’ inclusion as part of his back room staff is proving a stumbling block. One thing thats for certain, is that the transfer rumours aren’t showing any signs of letting up, and are in full flow.
Yesterday, reliable Norwegian. journalist Jan Aage Fjortoft claimed that Van Gaal has made Kevin Strootman and Toni Kroos his top midfield targets going into the new season.

Both of which would add an awful lot to our midfield. Toni Kroos is an excellent passer of the game, with vision that is second to none. Strootman is built in the Keane mould, and will never shirk a tackle.
Both of which are set to cost a pretty penny though, with talk of Kroos being valued at around the £30-40m mark, and Strootman only moved to Roma last summer for around £15m.
Who’d be the better signing, Kroos or Strootman? Leave your thoughts in the comment box below.
