Van Gaal said:

"In football, you have to judge. Always you have to give a chance to a player to make a transfer when you see that his perspective is not so high to play.

"You have to say it in advance. When you say it on August 31st it's too late. I shall say to the players what I think after the tour."

Manchester United have racked up wins over the Los Angeles Galaxy, Roma, Inter Milan and Real Madrid, but the manager is still unhappy with certain aspects of his squad.

Javier Hernandez, Shinji Kagawa and Wilfried Zaha face uncertain futures after limited playing time in America while Marouane Fellaini and Anderson, who have not made the trip, could also be shown the door.

Van Gaal has sent coach Marcel Bout back to England to work with the likes of Robin van Persie, Adnan Januzaj, and Fellaini, who have been given time off following their exploits at the World Cup.
