liked Louis Van Gaal!

It is an open secret that PSG would happily cash in on Zlatan Ibrahimovic this summer, but the Swedish forward’s wages, and unique temperament, appear to be putting off any potential buyers.
But despite being one of the most high maintenance footballers in the world, the 33-year-old is a serious talent and his goal in the first-half against United displayed his power, awareness and cool finishing ability.
Such a charismatic centre-forward would be perfect for United and a top quality short-term solution to their goalscoring problems, but having called Louis van Gaal a ‘pompous a---‘ in his autobiography, Zlatan and LVG appear a unlikely match.

2. De Gea needs to sharpen up and prepare for one more year in Manchester

David de Gea made his Manchester United debut at Soldier Field in 2011, but he probably never expected to be back in Chicago this summer after ending last season seemingly destined for Real Madrid.
The reality, however, is that Real have not made their move, he has not pushed for a transfer and the end result is that he remains United’s keeper.
De Gea does not look fully focussed and he was poor in the first-half before being replaced at half-time by Sam Johnstone.
But with the Premier League campaign just nine days away, he must now prepare for another year at Old Trafford and show that he is not distracted by uncertainty.

3. Rooney and Depay might turn out to be an excellent partnership

Louis van Gaal believes Memphis Depay can solve Manchester United’s goalscoring problems in tandem with Wayne Rooney this season, despite the young winger arriving from PSV Eindhoven with no experience of English football.
Rooney and Depay have looked sharp during the US tour, however, and they gave their best performance together against PSG.
Both players are neat and tidy on the ball, keen to work quick one-twos and exchange positions and, at this early stage, the pair look a much better fit than Rooney and Robin van Persie.
If they can develop a partnership comparable to the Andy Cole-Dwight Yorke pairing, then United can look forward to a productive double act.

4. Shirt sales show USA really is the land of opportunity...

Manchester United’s ten-year shirt deal with Adidas comes into force at midnight on Friday, but you would never have guessed it by the merchandise stalls inside Soldier Field which were selling the current Nike shirt for $60.
At kick-off time, the Nike shirt was just 46 hours away from being obsolete and consigned to history, but they know how to make a buck in the States and this was certainly a classic example of squeezing every last ounce from a money-making opportunity.
Let’s just hope those who left the game with a new United shirt don’t head into an Adidas store any time soon.

5. Van Gaal still hasn't solved United's defensive problems

So much for Manchester United signing a dominant centre-half this summer, as was planned by Louis van Gaal.
With just over a month to go until the transfer deadline, the gaping hole at centre-half is yet to be filled, with Van Gaal starting with Daley Blind in that position in each of the four games on tour.
Blind is a good footballer with an eye for a pass, but the Holland international is too slow to play at centre-half and he is not the commanding figure that United need at the heart of their back four.
Chris Smalling, who ended last season well, has made way for Blind. Had he been dropped in favour of a Sergio Ramos or Thiago Silva, it would have been understandable, but Blind appears nothing more than a stop-gap.
PSG lost on penalties against Chelsea in their last match, while Untied ran out 3-1 victors over European champions Barcelona.

United Sign Romero

Sergio Romero (left) has signed a three-year deal at Manchester United
As we have mentioned earlier that Romero is on the way to Manchester Now it has  done .  Manchester United have signed Argentina international goalkeeper Sergio Romero on a three-year contract.
Romero, whose deal with United includes the option of a fourth year, moves on a free transfer from Italian side Sampdoria after his contract there ended.
He was previously signed by United manager Louis van Gaal for AZ Alkmaar in 2007 from Racing Club.
Romero has also turned out for AS Monaco and has won 62 caps for his country, playing in last year’s World Cup final defeat to Germany in Brazil.
The 28-year-old has joined up with Van Gaal’s squad for the last part of their pre-season tour of the United States and could play some part in Wednesday’s final friendly there with Paris Saint-Germain.
Romero comes in as back-up for David de Gea as things stand but that could change in the future, with Sky sources understanding United are resigned to losing De Gea, either this summer or in 2016.
Romero played for Argentina in last year's World Cup final
Romero told the official Manchester United website: "I am absolutely delighted to join Manchester United. To play for the biggest club in the world is a dream come true for me.
"Louis van Gaal is a fantastic manager and I cannot wait to get started on this new and exciting challenge in my career."
Romero’s recruitment comes as United remain in a stand-off with Madrid over their pursuit of De Gea.
Louis van Gaal has admitted there is a 'threat' David de Gea may join Real Madrid
The Spanish side have been long-time admirers of him but Sky sources understand United will only let him leave if Sergio Ramos comes the other way.
That appears unlikely at present given Ramos’ recent appointment as captain and Real manager Rafael Benitez saying he is 100 per cent sure the defender will stay at the club.

Barcelona VS Man Utd Result

Manchester United continued their winning run in pre-season
Manchester United gained their best pre-season victory so far by beating Barcelona 3-1 in front of 68,414 at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California.
Wayne Rooney's eighth-minute header from Ashley Young's corner put United in front.
Jesse Lingard doubled the lead when he swept home Tyler Blackett's cross after Louis van Gaal had replaced his entire starting XI just past the hour mark.
Rafinha's splendid volley in the final minute was followed almost immediately by United's third from Adnan Januzaj as Van Gaal's team struck on the break.
Victory over the European champions is a welcome sign of progress for Van Gaal - particularly in attack - although Barcelona did hit the woodwork on three occasions, twice through Luis Suarez, who also had a goal disallowed for offside.
United, who have a 100% record from their three US tour games, have only one match of their pre-season campaign remaining, against Paris St-Germain in Chicago on 29 July.

Making their case to start the new season

Speculation remains over the future of goalkeeper David De Gea
Louis van Gaal said on Friday his starting line-up to face Barcelona would be a pointer to the side he intends to select for the opening Premier League game against Tottenham on 8 August.
