Van Gaal tickled by fan's transfer list

By Agency

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal reacted mirthfully after being handed a list of suggested transfer targets by a disabled supporter during a recent charity event.
A video published on United's website shows Van Gaal and several first-team players meeting fans suffering from life-limiting illnesses at the club's Carrington training base as part of a 'Dream Day' organised by the Manchester United Foundation.
One fan hands Van Gaal a sheet of paper listing players with whom United have been linked, including Borussia Dortmund defender Mats Hummels, Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba and Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale.
Van Gaal thanks the fan and pockets the list, saying: "Hummels, (Nathaniel) Clyne, Pogba, (Gareth) Bale, (Memphis) Depay, Jackson Martinez? Thank you for this. I'll bear it in mind. You are smart."
