Louis van Gaal will not get drawn into any mind-games with Jose Mourinho and he says he still regards the Chelsea manager as his 'friend'
Premier League live updates
Steven Caulker has completed his move from Championship side Cardiff City to newly promoted Queen's Park Rangers.
The 22-year-old centre-back has joined Harry Redknapp's side after just one season at Cardiff, who were relegated from the Premier League at the end of the 2013-14 season.
Liverpool are set to sign France striker Loic Remy, 27, from QPR, for a fee reported to be in the £8.5m ballpark. The Reds' bid activated a release clause in Remy's contract.
Loanee Remy played for Newcastle United last season, scoring 14 Premier League goals and enhancing his reputation as a top-class finisher.
The Frenchman will discuss personal terms and then have a medical before completing his move to Anfield.
QPR boss Harry Redknapp is hoping to add Cardiff skipper Steven Caulker to his squad, plus an unnamed England forward.
Redknapp insists he will always buy British players if possible.
"You can take chances with too many foreign players," he said.
"In the main I like players that have played in England and proved they can do it here rather than wait six months to see if they settle in – we haven't got six months.
"We are looking at another English striker so if I can get British players in the main then I will."
Denis Irwin believes new Man Utd boss Louis van Gaal will be a resounding hit at Old Trafford.
Van Gaal's first game in charge comes on Wednesday when United take on the Los Angeles Galaxy in the first game of their US tour.
"We would have liked him in earlier, but he did well with the Netherlands [at the World Cup]," Irwin said.
"Slowly but surely he will be able to put his own imprint on the way he wants Manchester United to play.
"The manager has won trophies all over the world. His experience will be good for us. Next season we have to aim for the summit."
