Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal is relaxed about the lack of incoming players at Old Trafford, according to reports.

Dutch forward Memphis Depay has been the only arrival at the club this summer, when he was brought in last month for £25million.

United have been linked to a slew of players during the transfer window but none are yet to materialise.

According to the Manchester Evening News, the United boss and the club's hierarchy are 'comfortable' with their progress in the market.

With David De Gea on the verge of a move to Real Madrid, United are pushing for Karim Benzema to be a part of that deal. If that doesn't happen, they could again turn their attention to Gareth Bale.

Defenders Nicolas Otamendi and Mats Hummels continue to be linked, as does Borussia Dortmund team-mate Ilkay Gundogan. Hummels said he doesn't want to join the club and Dani Alves opted to sign a new deal at Barcelona when he was heavily linked with a move to the club.

With De Gea looking likely to leave, United will probably need to buy a new No 1 goalkeeper.

Several players are also rumoured to be leaving the club this summer, with Robin van Persie and British record signing Angel Di Maria the two most high-profile names linked with an exit.

The likes of Javier Hernandez, Luis Nani, Adnan Januaza and Jonny Evans have also become targets for other clubs.

Now back in the Champions League Manchester United are expected to fight on four fronts and mount a stronger challenge for the Premier League title.
