However, former Old Trafford boss Van Gaal doubts Timber would play regularly if he moves to the North West this summer.

And with the World Cup looming in November, the Netherlands coach hinted that it could be a problem for the tournament.

He says Timber, 20, will have time to move to England at some point in the future.

LVG said: “I think a player with his qualities can play in the prem. This is not a problem.

“But whether he has to take this big step now – that is the question.”

Van Gaal was asked what would happen if Timber joined United but was not selected in the season’s opening games.

He smiled; “Then he’s not that smart, I guess. He has to play.”

Meanwhile, van Gaal is hoping the Red Devils’ new chief executive can help put the club back on track for his compatriot Ten Hag.

In the past he has called United a “commercial club” – but hopes Richard Arnold – who replaced Ed Woodward – can thrive.

It was Woodward who showed LVG the door after leading United to FA Cup glory in 2016.

Van Gaal added: “There’s new leadership – it was Woodward and now it’s Richard Arnold. That can make a difference.

“We have to wait. But he has a lot of self-confidence.”
