Arturo Vidal (Juventus)
The Chilean midfielder is ideal for the Manchester United midfield, with his tenacious tackling and passion. Van Gaal is known to be an admirer of the Juventus star, but the Italian club may not be willing to accept any offers, even if it around the £32-million mark, which United are thought to have offered.
Ángel di María (Real Madrid)
The winger flatted to deceive at the World Cup for Argentina, but he is highly rated by Louis van Gaal, and the Dutchman seems ready to tussle with Paris St Germain for the former Benfica attacker.
Arda Turan (Atletico Madrid)
A former Galatasaray winger, who has won 72 caps for Turkey, Turan has a release-fee clause of £32 million, and with Liverpool and others circling, Louis van Gaal could enter into the fray.
With a reported £150m war-chest at his disposal, Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal has no shortage of options in strengthening his playing squad.
Ander Herrera and Luke Shaw are already in place for the coming season and in his first press conference since taking over in the Old Trafford hot-seat, the Dutch man says he will take his time before choosing any new players.
Here are eleven players being linked to the red half of Manchester.
