Sean SwabyUK Staff WriterJuly 31, 2014

As the Premier League season approaches and pre-season heats up, Louis van Gaal continues to steal the spotlight on the back pages. 

Expectations are high for the new Manchester United boss, and his bosses will be keeping a keen eye on him as United attempt to regroup after finishing in seventh place last season. 

The Sun's back page alludes as much:
