Louis van Gaal insists that United do not need to buy a striker, despite a goalless draw against Newcastle.
We see that what United needs is a natural forward, but with Rooney at their disposal, Louis Van Gaal insists that’s the last thing the Red Devils need.
Newcastle withstood onslaught after onslaught from United and forced a draw at the Old Trafford.
United have been linked with Bale, Mane and recently Neymar, but Louis Van Gaal will rather hold on to Hernandez, Rooney and Wilson.
“No, because we were three times the best team,” he told Sky Sports when asked if United needed to splash the cash.
“My worry is that we have to dominate the opponent and we did it today, we did it against Aston Villa, Tottenham and [Club] Brugge.
“I am satisfied with the performance and not with the result and that is different.
“We were unlucky with rewarding ourselves because we have created a lot of chances.”
Rooney found the net for United in the fourth minute, though the strike was ruled offside, and Van Gaal was disappointed with the decision.
“Wayne scored. Only it was not allowed,” he added.
“It is doubtful and the rules are that when it is doubtful, then do not flag.
“But it is also football and I have said already many times you need more equipment to help the referees and linesmen because it is not easy.”
