There are still speculations surrounding Di Maria’s future at United and LVG is expecting the Argentine to join the team on their pre-season tour.
Marcos Rojo and Di Maria both got extended breaks for their role in the Copa, but both are expected to join the team in America.
Di Maria is on the verge of joining PSG, but LVG feels this shouldn’t hinder him from joining the team, though he might not be fit enough to start.
“I expect Di Maria tomorrow, because we have communicated that and they have responded on that,” Van Gaal told reporters. “I am not answering questions about transfers or the process.
“Di Maria cannot play in the game because we have to build him up. When you come out of your holidays you cannot play immediately a game, so that is out of the question.
“It is not so difficult dealing with transfer rumours because I never answer the questions, because I can’t. I want to answer them but it’s not good for Manchester United, for the players and for me.
“Every word I speak about players who are in the transfer process is one word too much, because I have read a lot of interesting players that Manchester United should buy, but it’s not true of every player.”
