Louis van Gaal is eyeing moves this month

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has admitted he needs to add to his attack this month.

The transfer window opened today with United languishing in sixth place and on a run of eight games without a win.

And Van Gaal, who sanctioned the departure of Robin van Persie, Javier Hernandez and Radamel Falcao in the summer, is now looking to get his cheque book out again.

When asked if the lack of attacking options has placed too much of a burden on United's only recognised strikers Wayne Rooney and Anthony Martial to deliver goals, Van Gaal said: "Maybe you are be right but that you cannot see in advance.

"The problem [lack of goals] can be solved with money but also on the training pitch.

"We are always looking for solutions. We are working on it in training but scoring goals is a quality. We have that quality but, at this moment, there is a lack of confidence at the right time. Or we need to buy another striker."

He added: "I don't believe too much in competition.

"I believe in trust and confidence. Maybe that is wrong but I have done it all my life as a manager. I give trust to the players who are in those positions.

"We could have kept all the strikers but then there would have been a lot of strikers in the tribune [stand]. They are not happy then. They want to go away. It is the story of Hernandez for example. He wants to play.

"Too many strikers of high quality for the same position means too much pressure but now I don't have the chance to change."

Liverpool could be looking to Barcelona in search of a new keeper, according to reports in Spain.

The Reds, who are hoping to tie Simon Mignolet down to a new deal, are considering their options this month.

Adam Bogdan played against Watford just before Christmas but failed to show why Brendan Rodgers brought him in from Bolton in the summer.

And Spanish publication RMC claim Jurgen Klopp is considering a move for German keeper Marc Andre Ter Stegen.
