Manchester United are set to announce Louis van Gaal as the club’s new manager at the beggining of next week, according to the Telegraph.
The current Dutch international manager is coaching his squad ahead of their World Cup campaign this summer, but after Saturday’s friendly with Ecuador the entire Dutch camp have two days free to spend taking care of other matters or taking advantage of rest.
This in turn opens up a window for van Gaal to complete negotiations with the former Premier League champions, who have identified the experienced former Ajax, Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss as the man to permanently replace David Moyes as manager at Old Trafford.
It is thought that the deal for van Gaal to take the reigns at Old Trafford will be announced on Monday, with van Gaal seeing out his duties as Dutch boss at the World Cup before moving to Manchester permanently.
Former interim boss Ryan Giggs met with the Dutchman in Holland on Wednesday to finalise plans over his future, with the word out of the meeting being that Giggs was offered the role as van Gaal’s number two for next season.
Van Gaal is expected to oversee a summer of massive spending and rebuilding at Old Trafford in an effort to overcome United’s disappointing 2013/14 season.
