Louis van Gaal was asked this week whether there was any truth to stories linking the Red Devils with moves for either Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos, or Bayern Munich forward Robert Lewandowski.
Without categorically ruling out either transfer specifically, Van Gaal took a swipe at the silly season in the papers, as rumours constantly bubble up on a daily basis.
Van Gaal criticised the press for how they behave in the transfer window, writing:
There is so much in the papers but it is not true… He is writing always rubbish, and then it is true. In the media it is true. No, it is not true.
