The likely arrival of Holland head coach Louis van Gaal as Manchester United’s next manager is set to spark a move for Ajax winger Ricardo Kishna, [football] direct news understands. The teenager, labelled ‘the next Angel Di Maria’ by Dutch observers after a string of performances emulating the Real Madrid and Argentina star, was already on the Red Devils’ radar. However, van Gaal’s presence will only serve to intensify United’s interest and an offer could be made within weeks for the wideman. His knowledge of football in his homeland is inevitably vast and the champions’ uncharacteristic lack of flair this term is likely to be a pressing matter for the new manager. Antonio Valencia, Nani and Ashley Young have all struggled to find consistent form on the flanks and would come under considerable pressure for a place in the side if Kishna was to arrive this summer. His contract at Ajax is entering its final weeks and an extension is yet to be agreed, meaning he can be snapped up on a free transfer.
