Van Gaal didn't sign Herrera. That's a fact which was confirmed by the board. As for Kroos, there was no way Kroos would choose us over Madrid. Besides, he needs a functional mobile setup if you're to bring out the best in him because he doesn't have the work rates nor the mobility. The likes of Modric and Schweisteiger were players who have complemented him a lot for Madrid, Germany and Bayern. We don't have these players at the club. Kroos wouldn't have amounted to any success if he was here even as he has now found it difficult after Schweisteiger retired from Germany and Modric's decline at Madrid. On Ighalo, there were rumours eventhough I haven't seen a reputable sources claiming we actually bid 35mil for him which was rejected (only express reported it) however I won't rule this out because we were so desperate for a striker in January considering Rooney's poor form after he returned from his injury lay off but I find it ridiculous that Watford would reject 35mil bid from us and later sold to China for 20mil. It was either Van Gaal had thought he could come at a cheap price like other players he took punts on and help us (he had scored 12 goals in 20 starts then) but he probably had no option than to pull out because Watford wanted more. There was nothing wrong with that. Any coach would have done that if he had injuries/an off form striker and that shouldn't be used as a stick to beat him. Chelsea did the same with Higuain.
