According to reports, Manchester United are preparing a bid for 22-year-old forward, Saido Berahino.
Manchester United will be battling the likes of Liverpool and Tottenham for his signature.
It is certainly no secret that the Red Devils need some more firepower in their striking options, England international Wayne Rooney has had a slow start to the season and Manchester United need more alternatives up front.
Van Gaal is believed to be very interested in signing the young talent, Berahino managed to score 20 goals last season in 45 games and there was some heavy interest from Spurs in the last transfer window.
Rumours have claimed that Spurs will be launching a bid for the England international in January though meaning that Manchester United will need to be quick if they plan on signing the player.
