In a recent interview, Manchester United manager, Louis van Gaal stated he is on the lookout for more quality to add to the team he is still in the process of building
Â“No, itÂ’s not my Manchester United
Why? Because we have to look for more balance in the team and for more creativity,Â” van Gaal said in America.
Is that Â“qualityÂ” player a forward? Right now United are carrying four forwards on their roster: Wayne Rooney; new arrival Memphis Depay; Javier Hernandez and youngster James Wilson
Rooney and Depay look to be the two that will be the starters when the new campaign begins in a couple of weeks
In the few games that United have played in their pre-season tour around America, Rooney and Depay look to be building a strong relationship with each other
It is far from perfect, but in time, they look to complement each other very well.
If one of them goes down, who will step in to fill the role? Hernandez is a quality player, but is not a world-class striker and doesnÂ’t put fear into anyoneÂ’s back four
He works hard and most of his goals come from opportunities that present themselves
Wilson, on the other hand, looks to be the future of the United front line
The issue is the future is not today.
Over the next several weeks, many names will come up as potential additions to the United lineup so stand by for the rapid fire rumor mill to get into high gear
There are several quality strikers out there doing nothing more than taking up space on some other team's bench
If you were that striker, wouldn't you rather be sitting on the United bench poking pins in your Wayne Rooney doll?
