Manchester United will struggle to land Louis van Gaal if they choose to get rid of David Moyes this summer, as the veteran manager is only looking to coach sides in the Champions League.
According to reports in the Daily Mail Van Gaal is to consider his options before pledging his future to a Premier League side, with both United and Tottenham having been linked with appointing him in charge as of the summer. The Dutchman will leave his job in the dugout of Holland’s national side after the World Cup, and so naturally rumours have suggested that he could be in line to replace Moyes at Old Trafford, if the Glazer family wield the axe following a woeful season.
However United may be forced to turn to other targets if they are indeed looking for a new head-coach, as Van Gaal wants to be managing in European football’s elite club competition as of next term - something that the Red Devils may not be able to offer him.
Currently Moyes' side sit seventh in the Premier League, and are some way off looking like qualifying through a top four finish. Meanwhile they face an uphill battle to progress past the quarter-finals of the competition, as they face reigning champions Bayern Munich.
Of course the English giants may choose to keep the faith with Moyes, but a few demoralising results between now and the end of the season could well seal his fate.
