Dutch defending midfielder, Nigel De Jong could be on his way to Manchester United in the summer as he stalls negotiations with AC Milan, hoping for an approach by the Old Trafford outfit.
Van Gaal has come out and stated that he is a fan of the former Manchester City hard tackler. It is no secret that Manchester United are desperately in need of a tough tackler in their midfield and Nigel, who relishes the chance of working with Van Gaal again looks to be reunited with the man who led The Netherlands to a bronze medal at the World Cup. AC Milan are desperate to hang on to De Jong, but his heart seems set on Manchester United.
De Jong revealed in January that he fancied a return to the Premier league but did not divulge the club he preferred to play for.
