After his very tetchy interview following their 1-0 defeat to Chelsea on Saturday, Louis van Gaal's mood had changed utterly in 48 hours.

The supporters, who suffer from life-limiting illnesses, were filmed meeting Marouane Fellaini, David De Gea, Wayne Rooney and many more.

Louis van Gaal read out a transfer wishlist handed to him by one of the fans which read: Mats Hummels, £36m. Nathaniel Clyne, £15m. Paul Pogba, £75m. Gareth Bale, £120m. Jackson Martinez, £25m. Total = £271m.

"It's easy for me, next year we are the champions," said the smiling boss.
