Louis van Gaal is ready to succeed doomed David Moyes as Manchester United boss.
Moyes was sacked on Tuesday after less than a year in charge, because United finally lost patience with him and decided to cut their losses.
Mirror Sport reported 10 days ago how United have already sounded out Holland boss Van Gaal, who is expected to meet with the club’s hierarchy this week.
Van Gaal is currently at his villa in Portugal’s Algarve and is expecting a meeting there with a delegation from the Old Trafford giants to discuss the prospect of taking over from Moyes.
The Dutch coach has already held talks with Tottenham but the 62-year-old is said to be holding out for the United job, which is why he has yet to commit to Spurs.
