Unless there is some drastic turn of events in the next few hours then Louis van Gaal will give his weekly press conference as normal on Wednesday.
But The Sun claims that his stay could be temporary as high-level meetings took place on Tuesday to determine the future and timeline for Louis van Gaal at Manchester United.
The Sun reports:
Louis van Gaal edging closer to the Manchester United axe
Executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward was locked in a meeting at the club’s London HQ yesterday.
Yet there was no announcement last night and manager Van Gaal is still due to hold a press conference at the training ground today.
And Mourinho’s agent Jorge Mendes has said that no deal is in place for a Manchester United move but stopped short of denying that it could happen:
“We don’t know what will happen in the future but right now there is no agreement. There isn’t an official proposal either.”
We can understand some feelings of loyalty that Woodward has for Van Gaal. But the biggest responsibility that the Manchester United kingpin has is to the fans. They deserve winning football. And that is why Woodward will be making his biggest mistake yet if he doesn’t push the button and make a deal for Jose Mourinho happen.
There has been no progress this season and a home reverse against Norwich is inexcusable.
We believe that Louis should already have been sacked. That he hasn’t by now would suggest that he will remain in charge for the Stoke game – or else there would be little to no point in letting the Dutchman give a press conference on Wednesday.
The eyes of the world will certainly been Carrington today like never before.
