Louis van Gaal's appointment has broken a season ticket sales record at Manchester United.

The Mail on Sunday says United have sold all 55,000 season tickets in record time ahead of Van Gaal's arrival in England this week.

It is the earliest United have reached this point since the stadium was expanded to 76,000 fans in 2006.

The remaining 21,000 seats are held back for away fans and supporters who want to attend individual matches.
