LVG: We need to keep focus on task

Louis van Gaal has told his Manchester United players to lie back and think of Stoke.

Dreaming of a freezing Britannia, with the wind howling, is hardly the nicest way to bring in the New Year, but Van Gaal wants his squad to be single-minded.

He does not want them wasting time and energy, worrying about the chances of Chelsea and Manchester City dropping more points and says they must focus on themselves.

The United boss knows this from his time in charge of Barcelona and wants his players to visualise playing Stoke – in the first Premier League match of 2015 – in their minds.

“In Spain, Real Madrid was always on another day to Barcelona,” said the Dutchman. “When Real Madrid played one day before us and they lost that game, then I thought, ‘now we shall win’.

Roo”s switch can effect goals record

GettyNew role: Rooney”s midfield role could stop him from scoring goals, warns Hughes

Mark Hughes reckons Wayne Rooney can be the long-term heir to Paul Scholes at Manchester United – but has warned a permanent move into midfield might cost him the Premier League’s all-time leading goal-scorer crown.

Rooney has found himself switched from his traditional forward role to playing deeper as a midfielder for the Old Trafford giants of late.

The England skipper, 29, is currently third in the Premier League all-time scoring charts with 181 goals, with Shearer out in front with 260.

Hughes claims Rooney can fill the boots of legendary midfield maestro Scholes, who also played alongside the Welshman at Old Trafford.

But the Stoke boss has warned leapfrogging Blackburn and Newcastle legend Shearer to become the Premier League’s most prolific ever marksman would be a “big ask.”

Thursday”s United stories from other papers & websites

Falcao to sign

Manchester United are that keen to force through a permanent move to Radamel Falcao that they will get the deal done in January, according to Marca.

The Colombian striker has reportedly been impressing in recent weeks with the progress that he has made and United are said to have no hesitation in paying the £44million price tag in question.

Injuries had initially hampered Falcao”s start to life in Manchester but after scoring in the recent game at Aston Villa, Louis van Gaal has given the thumbs up to the move.

Coleman is No.1 target

Action ImagesAttacking prowess: Coleman would suit United”s wing-back position perfectly

Seamus Coleman is top of Louis van Gaal”s winter shopping list, according to the Guardian.

The Everton full-back would cost at least £20million but right-back is one of the positions in which Van Gaal understands he has to bring in strength in depth – and Coleman”s attacking attributes are attractive to United”s style of play.

Rafael is the current only established player in that position, but he has been left out of the team in recent weeks, forcing the search for a replacement.

Reus snub

Marco Reus is set to reject a move to one of the Premier League’s big guns as he has reportedly agreed a deal with Real Madrid, according to the Daily Star.

The German attacking midfielder has been the subject of interest from Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United and Manchester City, as he becomes available for £20million at the end of the current season.

But now it seems Los Blancos have edged ahead in the race and have secured the signature already.

Rami no go

Brian A. WesterholtStaying put: Milan do not want to sell their centre-back any time soon

Manchester United will not sign Adil Rami from AC Milan after the Italian giants said no to the switch, according to Tuttomercatoweb.

The Serie A side are said to be against selling the centre-back, who was reported to be linked with a swap deal with a number of United stars.

But now it appears that Milan, who are currently desperately trying to turn around their league fortunes, are not willing to sell the former Valencia defender.

Setting the bar for Vlaar

Ron Vlaar has been told to ignore the speculation and not sign for Arsenal and Manchester United, according to the Express.

It is believed that his team-mate Andreas Wiemann has told him to stay put at Villa Park, despite the fact his contract runs out at the end of the current campaign.

Both the Gunners and the Red Devils have been interested in securing his services, as both require defensive reinforcements in January.
