Manchester United: Done deal? Legend implies that agreement is close

There’s been a huge amount of speculation over the last week about David Moyes’s successor at Manchester United.

Without any official word from either party the rumour mills have gone into overdrive about Louis van Gaal taking the job.

The 62-year-old Holland manager is a free man after The World Cup and is reportedly keen to take the reigns at Manchester United.

Tellingly Manchester United legend Edwin van der Saar spoke about van Gaal and Manchester United this week. His words suggest that he has inside information on the deal and that it could just be a matter of time before it’s done.

As well as offering reassuring words for Manchester United fans about the quality of van Gaal he suggests that it’s a question of when not if van Gaal becomes Manchester United manager.

“I will say more about Louis and United once his appointment is official

“But I have made it clear here before that Louis van Gaal is the best manager I have ever played for.”

There has been a clamour for Ryan Giggs to take over as full-time manager of Manchester United but many believe that an experienced hand is needed during difficult times at Old Trafford.


The major problem in appointing van Gaal is that he might have little to no time to prepare his transfer list for next season. Being fully occupied by The World Cup he would limited time to communicate with potential transfers or negotiate deals.

Nevertheless it does look increasingly likely that the Dutchman will become the manager of Manchester United after The World Cup.

Manchester United fans is van Gaal the man for the job or would you rather Ryan Giggs to continue at the helm?
