Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal is ready to bomb out six senior players when he takes charge after the World Cup. The Daily Express says Van Gaal is already thinking about which players could make way for Sanchez at Old Trafford.

The Dutchman is preparing to offload a few attackers, with the futures of Nani, Ashley Young, Antonio Valencia and Shinji Kagawa under threat.

Strikers Javier Hernandez and Danny Welbeck also have question marks over their futures.

Van Gaal's formation of choice is an attacking 4-3-3, with a heavy focus on quick wingers.
