Manchester United move interests Van Gaal

Published Add your comment

Louis van Gaal is reported to have indicated an interest taking the job of Manchester United manager were the club to take the decision to relieve David Moyes of his duties. Van Gaal had been expected to assume the top position at Tottenham, but this now appears uncertain.

It is reported by Miguel Delaney of ESPN FC that Manchester United are not ruling out a potential departure for Moyes given the club's dreadful form, since the turn of the year in particular, and that sources close to Van Gaal claim he would be interested in the role were it to come up.

A move to Manchester United for Van Gaal would serve as a great frustration for Tottenham, with it reported that the esteemed Dutch coach's appointment at White Hart Lane to replace Tim Sherwood had been regarded as a virtual certainty by the club's hierarchy.

Van Gaal may be less inclined to take the Tottenham job should an opportunity at Old Trafford present itself, even if Manchester United are far less likely to achieve a spot in any European competition for next season. Spurs are currently in fifth place, five points ahead of Manchester United.

And, while both clubs are some distance from achieving a place in the top four, Spurs are in a much stronger position to reach the Europa League for 2014/15.
