Manchester United are preparing a double swoop for Feyenoord duo Jordie Clasie and Bruno Martins Indi in the summer, according to the Mirror.

Both players have been named in the World Cup Squad to travel to Brazil in the summer and Louis van Gaal is planning to get the deal done after the World Cup and take the pair to Old Trafford.

The Dutchman has passed on the interest to the United management, who will reportedly contact the Dutch club for a transfer and try to get the deal done when Van Gaal is working with the national team.

Midfielder Jordy Clasie has been likened to United legend Paul Scholes and at only 22, is expected to make the starting line-up for the Dutch national team.

The youngster will slot in straight into the United midfield, which has been crying for a replacement after Scholes hung up his boosts at the end of the 2012/13 season.

Bruno Martins is also a major prospect in the centre of defence for Netherlands and is being scouted by Van Gaal as a potential replacement for Nemanja Vidic, who has left the club for Inter Milan.

The former Bayern Munich manager is also keeping an eye out for Borussia Dortmund defender Mats Hummels and wants to groom Martins for the future.

United are expected to go on a major spending spree in the summer with their defence and midfied in need of a major overhaul.

Robin van Persie is expected to be handed the captaincy at United ahead of Wayne Rooney, with the striker in very good terms with his compatriot.

The England international has already iterated his desire to take the armband from Vidic, but insists that he has no problem with Van Persie as Captain.

\"I\'ve captained United a few times and to get it on a full-time basis would be great. But obviously with the new manager coming in, it\'s his decision. If he chooses someone else, then honestly I\'ve got no problems with that. I\'ll respect the decision. Robin is captain of his country, he has captained Arsenal and if Robin gets the nod to be captain, then I\'m sure he\'ll do a great job,\" Rooney said.
