Van Gaal to trial new blood in friendly

United have struggled for form under Sir Alex Ferguson's successor, David Moyes, this season, with the Premier League champions seventh in the table.

Van Persie's campaign has been disrupted by injury but he has still managed 10 goals in 15 league appearances for the Red Devils.

Van Gaal is looking forward to linking back up with Van Persie at this summer's World Cup, as he feels the striker relishes playing with his compatriots.

He said: "I think he should be great in the tournament because he loves to play in the Dutch squad.

"The football from Man United now is for him maybe difficult but then he wishes to show his techniques. Techniques in the Dutch team for him is higher.

"He has shown that all the qualification matches more than ever because he’s our top scorer and I hope he can continue this."
