Is Man United’s ‘secret striker’ chase for real, or is Louis van Gaal trolling big time?
Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal had some rather cryptic words to say at his latest press conference. The Dutchman confirmed that he is trying to sign a striker before the start of the upcoming campaign.
He claims, though, that it’s not one of the strikers that the media have reported on (e.g Edison Cavani, Robert Lewandowski, Thomas Muller).
At 2:55 in the video below, the question is asked of van Gaal. He responds by saying that it’s ‘in process’.

Who is it? Unsubstantiated and most likely ridiculous rumours suggest that a move for Ronaldo is in the works.
Van Gaal is keeping his cards close to his chest, and his oddly secretive nature indicated that the chase might well be on for real. Either that, or he’s sending millions of United fans on a wild goose chase.
