Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal is keen to find buyers for Shinji Kagawa and Tom Cleverley. The London Evening Standard says Van Gaal is ready to ditch Cleverley and Kagawa, both of whom are unlikely to play a part under the Dutchman.

England international Cleverley suffered a wretched season under former Old Trafford boss David Moyes, making just 18 Premier League starts for United and scoring just one goal.

Kagawa, meanwhile, has struggled to live up to expectations since his £17m arrival from Borussia Dortmund in 2012.
