Moyes was finally dismissed earlier today.

Manchester United decided David Moyes' fate 10 days ago

Published Add your comment

Manchester United did meet Louis van Gaal in Amsterdam 10 days ago as they moved closer to deciding the fate of former boss David Moyes, despite denials to the contrary.

Moyes was sacked this morning after a torrid season in charge of Old Trafford, managing to take the defending Premier League champions from top to seventh in the space of nine months.

Van Gaal is currently priced as bookies' favourite 8/11 to replace Moyes, a stance which has been strengthened by Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf confirming Van Gaal met with United for the first time on April 12th.

The former Barcelona and Ajax supremo would bring a wealth of experience to the role, with a proven track record and the trophy cabinet to match including two Champions League titles and a pair of La Liga crowns.

The 62-year-old is currently preparing to lead Holland into this summer's World Cup finals, which could prove a potential stumbling block to any deal as plans for next season at United would have to wait until mid-July.

United will want to move quickly in their plans for a replacement and an urgently required squad overhaul, although they do have the breathing room of four remaining Premier League games under the guidance of caretaker boss Ryan Giggs.
