Netherlands coach Louis van Gaal wants to sort out the Manchester United move in the next few days as he targets signing the German trio of Toni Kroos, Marco Reus and Mats Hummels to Old Trafford.
The Daily Mail reports the Dutchman is eyeing to secure the United managerial job, before he kick starts the preparation for the World Cup with his national side. Van Gaal has already confirmed that he would step down from the role of the Netherlands manager after the conclusion of the summer event in Brazil.
Van Gaal's move to Old Trafford has halted as the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss wants to bring in his own backroom staff. However, United chiefs want him to include the Class of 92 – Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt and Phil Neville as his coaching staff.
The 62-year-old is eyeing to seal the deal in the next few days so that he can make a list of transfer targets and hand it to United's executive chairman Ed Woodward. Van Gaal wants to sort out his United move much before he starts his preparation for the World Cup with the Netherlands.
Should Van Gaal replace David Moyes as United's permanent manager, he is looking to bring Bayern Munich star Kroos and the Borussi Dortmund duo of Reus and Hummels in the coming transfer window. The deal for the trio could see the Red Devils spend over £100m for these players alone in the summer.
Kroos has long been linked with a move to United, with the former boss keen on landing him in the January transfer window. The 24-year-old midfielder's move to Old Trafford received a massive boost after Bayern confirmed the deal in signing Sebastian Rode – a possible replacement for Kroos for the next season.
Reus and Hummels have also been on United's radar for a long time and Van Gaal is looking to bring the Dortmund duo in the summer, if he lands the job at Old Trafford.
The deal for Reus and Hummels could see United playmaker Shinji Kagawa return to Signal Iduna Park as a part of the transfer for the Dortmund duo. Meanwhile, Reus is remaining coy over his future with the Bundesliga outfit and refused to provide any update over a new contract.
"I'm not saying anything about my contract. But I do have the time to emphasise how good I feel at Dortmund," Reus told Bild.
A move for Kroos, Reus and Hummels in the summer is likely to bolster United's squad for the new campaign, as they look to regain their dominance in English football.
