LONDON, July 21- Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal revealed the Red Devils are on the verge of signing a striker, but refused to add any detail about the new man.

Speaking after the Red Devils’ 1-0 pre-season friendly victory over Club America, the Dutch coach hinted the club is in advanced talks to sign a new forward, but told the media they would have to be patient to find out who it was.

“He’s in the process,” Van Gaal said. “It’s not the striker that the media has written about. You have to wait and see.

“The transfer period is open until August 31. You have to wait.”

On the topic of transfers, the 63-year-old refused to rule out the much talked about move for Sergio Ramos.

“I cannot talk about these rumours. I have said already it’s a process and maybe Mr Ramos is in the process – you never know,” he added.
