Manchester United are ready to pounce for unsettled Bayern Munich star Bastian Schweinsteiger.
The People says United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is a big admirer of the midfielder who starred at last summer's World Cup in South Africa and who has 18 months left to run on his contract.
United, Real Madrid and Inter Milan have all been linked with the German.
And Van Gaal has practically put his player up for sale by suggesting Bayern should cash in on the 26-year-old who has spent his entire career at the club.
The Dutch coach said: "I think that Bayern Munich is a business and if it is true that £25million has been offered for him, then you cannot just ignore that kind of money."
