RUMOURS: Van Gaal targets Athletic duo for Man Utd

The former Barcelona boss wants the Red Devils to fork out €70 million for Mikel San Jose and Oscar de Marcos as he prepares for a third season in charge at Old Trafford


Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal wants to bring two of Athletic Club's key players to Old Trafford this summer, according to Don Balon.

The Dutchman is preparing for next season despite reports he will be relieved of his duties at the end of the current campaign, and is keen to bring both defender Mikel San Jose and midfielder Oscar de Marcos to the Premier League.

The pair are likely to cost around €70 million, but Van Gaal has instructed Ed Woodward to secure their signatures ahead of the 2016-17 campaign.
