Man Utd boss Van Gaal hints at ‘surprise striker’ signing

Manchester United’s striker position has been left somewhat dented with the departures of Robin van Persie, Radamel Falcao and Angelo Henriquez, but there have been widespread reports that the club will bring in a new face.

Louis van Gaal met the media ahead of United’s clash with San Jose Earthquakes in the early hours of tomorrow morning, and heres what he had to say on the striker situation:

“I am not worried about depth of forwards. We still have Rooney. He can play in the striker’s position. Last year the media said he had to play there. I listen to the media.” Van Gaal said.

“We also have [Javier] Hernandez, [James] Wilson and maybe a surprise, you never know. It is a process.”

These quotes from Louis van Gaal are certainly interesting. First of all its clear that Javier Hernandez is going to get his chance to impress the manager, but we could also see a ‘surprise’ striker signing – someone who the media havent linked us with.

That rules out the likes of Thomas Muller, Robert Lewandowski and Karim Benzema, so who knows who this surprise may be if the club pull it off.

Who should United sign? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.
