Ryan Giggs has given a potential insight into Louis van Gaal 's remaining transfer plans at Manchester United this summer after comparing his commitment to investing in young players to Sir Alex Ferguson.

Though both Luke Shaw and Ander Herrera have joined this summer, Van Gaal has hesitated making further additions until he has fully evaluated his squad.

Ferguson earned a reputation as one of the finest managers in British football during his 26 years at United, not least for his use of the club's much-vaunted youth system, which produced the likes of Giggs, Paul Scholes and Gary Neville.

The proficiency of United's youth team often dictated Ferguson's approach in the transfer market and Giggs expects similar from Van Gaal, an indication the Dutch coach may not add to his current squad.

"He wants to attack, score goals, be aggressive and play attractive football," Giggs said of the new manager who began his United tenure with a 7-0 win over LA Galaxy. "He is willing to give young players a chance, which ticks the majority of the boxes in terms of what it takes to be a Manchester United player.

"They have an aura about them. That comes from the success they have had. They demand the players respond and they demand respect. In the short space of time I have worked with him you can see why he has been a success. He is infectious.

"He wants everything right from the first minute of training to the last. Everything we are working from is the blueprint he sent over from the World Cup, every minute of every session is laid down. He has now taken over."

"Just everything he does is clear and everyone gets it straight away. He has got a unique way of putting it over but it's brilliant to see. To see it first-hand is great for my experience and the players.

"It's quite simple but if you make a mistake he will tell you and if you do something good he will tell you. You know what you are doing wrong and you know what you are doing right."
