van gaal manEnglish newspaper The Mirror reported this morning that Manchester United officials had met Van Gaal in the last 48 hours to convince the Dutchman to take over from Moyes in the summer.

However sources from the Premier League giants have reportedly dismissed these rumours to ESPN, and have stated that they still fully believe David Moyes is the right man in charge.

Van Gaal has also been heavily linked with Tottenham after he announced his intention to step down as Netherlands boss after the World Cup this summer. The 62-year-old former coach of Bayern Munich, Ajax and Barcelona has made no secret of his desire to manage in England before he retires, and with Tim Sherwood set to leave Spurs at the end of the season, Van Gaal is the number one target to take over.

The speculation over Van Gaal’s future is set to go on until after the World Cup, and fans of Netherlands will be hoping all the rumours dont effect the coach’s ability to manage the Oranje in Brazil.
