Louis Van Gaal is set to appoint Patrick Kluivert as his assistant at Manchester United should he be given the job.
According to the Daily Mail, Van Gaal has agreed a deal to join United, and one of his first thoughts will be to instate Kluivert alongside him.
And having mentored Kluivert as both a player and a coach, they look set to continue their affiliation in the Premier League.
Whilst Old Trafford chiefs have denied that a deal has been agreed, Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf are reporting that the two parties have met and made an agreement.
A proven winner, Van Gaal is also something of a Maverick.
In the wake of the Dutchman being linked with the vacant United job, a series of whacky stories have emerged about the former Barcelona and Ajax coach.
True or false, stories such as dropping his trousers in the dressing room, admitting to crying daily and pushing a 14-year-old Gerard Pique to the floor make for good reading.
However, Red Devils fans will have to wait to see Van Gaal in action should he get the job.
His immediate focus will be on guiding Holland to their first World Cup win in Brazil, and a second consecutive final.
And should he do that, he'll be relying heavily on the striking prowess of United forward Robin van Persie.
