Van Gaal rules out transfer remedy

Swansea - Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal said that he would not jump into the transfer market to solve his side's goal-scoring problems following their 2-1 defeat at Swansea City.

Asked if he would look to bolster his squad with extra attacking power before Tuesday's transfer deadline, Van Gaal replied: "You can never speak as a club like United that you are satisfied.

"(But) certainly we shall not sign at the end of the transfer period a player that we have not scouted before.

"We know in offence what is happening or not happening. It is not an issue. When it is like that we have to keep going and in January, the (transfer) window is open again.

"It is a process and I cannot change that process because you are dependable not only (on) the player you want, but also the club."

One issue still dogging Van Gaal concerns goalkeeper David de Gea.

Van Gaal has dropped De Gea following months of speculation linking the Spaniard with a move to Real Madrid, but the manager said that he was happy to take a back seat in the club's transfer dealings.

"We will have to wait and see," he said.

"I don't want to interfere. As a club, we have divided our tasks and the task is for (executive vice-chairman) Ed Woodward and not me.

"I don't want to interfere with words or nothing. It is a process and we have to wait and see. The club will announce it and so on."
