62-Year old Louis van Gaal wants to be named Manchester United manager this week, so he can focus all his attention on the upcoming World Cup with the Dutch national side. Van Gaal is heavy favourite for the job, with many claiming a deal has already been done.
SunSport claim that a £40m deal spread over four years has already been agreed, and all that is lett to do is the signing of the contract.
Van Gaal said:
“I think I have to concentrate on the World Cup because I am coach of the Dutch team.”
This is fair enough from Van Gaal. He’s been concentrating on the World Cup for the last couple of years and he’ll obviously want to see that job through before turning his attention to the Manchester United job.
He’ll already have transfer targets in mind, and it is believed that he has drawn up a shortlist of players he’d like to sign before he officially takes charge in July.
