United assistant manager Ryan Giggs revealed today despite being on holiday he was in contact with Louis van Gaal and fellow assistant Albert Stuivenberg about new signings.


“If there are players available who are winners, who are proven then, yeah, let’s go and get them," he told the Sunday Times.

“On holiday I was still on the phone to Albert about players coming in and players for the new season.

“With any good team, the spine is important. Midfield, striker, centre-backs, goalkeeper. I’m sure we’ll be looking to strengthen the spine all the way through."
