Louis van Gaal arrives at Manchester United... in poster form and without his own body
Huge image of new manager is plastered outside the Theatre of Dreams
A huge poster featuring Louis van Gaal has gone up outside Old Trafford as the arrival of the Dutchman at Manchester United nears.
However the image at the back of the East Stand is not quite what it seems.
Put up to promote Manchester United's new kit, the body of Van Gaal looks rather slimmer than in reality. It would appear as though the former Ajax and Barcelona manager may have had his head superimposed onto someone else's body.

It also seems unlikely that with the 62-year-old currently in Brazil preparing the Netherlands for a World Cup semi-final with Argentina he would have taken time out for a photoshoot.
While Van Gaal may has arrived in poster form, he will soon be there in person. It's understood that he wants to take up the reigns as soon as possible after the end of the Netherlands' World Cup campaign, which could come to an end on Wednesday night.
He has already been involved from afar, being involved in the signings of Luke Shaw and Ander Herrera and most recently ordering the Manchester United squad to take double-training sessions upon their return for pre-season.
