Louis van Gaal to be appointed Manchester United boss within 48 hours

It seems like we all know that Louis van Gaal will be the next Manchester United manager, and its more than a case of when and not if the Dutchman will be named boss. We’ll have to wait a little longer yet though, with The Guardian’s Jamie Jackson suggesting it’ll be done over the next couple of days.

Originally we were led to believe that no deal would be announced until the final game of the season took place on Sunday, with many fans then thinking a deal would be announced on Monday. However that didn’t happen, and as Louis van Gaal is set to meet the media about his Holland international duties this afternoon, I’d be surprised if any deal is announced before that.

Interim manager Ryan Giggs has suggested that we’ll know more within the next week or so, and it is widely expected that the 40-year old will be offered a coaching role in some capacity by the new boss. My first choice of coach coming in would be Rene Meulensteen. He’s worked at United under Sir Alex Ferguson, and he was an influential figure in our title-winning campaign in the 2012/13 season.

  1. Whole heartedly agree with the point about Meulensteen. The man must be involved, links with SAF and also Dutch.
