Louis van Gaal speaks out on new signings and De Gea's future after Swansea defeat


Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal says he will not "panic buy" after the 2-1 away defeat against Swansea City.

The Red Devils suffered their first defeat of the season after conceding two goals in five minutes at the Liberty Stadium.

But the Dutchman will not dive into the transfer market as he is ready to wait for the winter transfer window to add quality players to this squad.

"No, it doesn't have any effect [today's defeat]," he is quoted as saying by the club's official website.

"When you are scouting players, you already know in advance more than a month or two months which ones you can buy or not. It's not that we are in a panic at the last moment. When you see the game, we were the dominant team but you have to score more and not concede the goals.

"You can never speak as a club as Manchester United that you are satisfied because that depends on the process. But, certainly, we shall not buy at the end of the transfer period a player that we haven't scouted before.

"We know in advance what is happening and what is not happening. It's not an issue.

"We have to keep on and, in January, the window is open. It is a process and I cannot change the process. It is not only dependent on the player but the club. It is a lot of things that you cannot force.

"[Departures?] You have to wait and see until Manchester United make announcements or the club the player is going to makes announcements. Otherwise, he [De Gea] stays.

"I think we have coped [with the situation] by signing Sergio Romero, that's what we have done at the club to settle it down. I think we have done it well.

"I don't speak about conversations I have with players because that is between a player and a manager."
