Netherlands manager Louis van Gaal has ramped up persistent speculation that he wants a return to club management with Manchester United or Tottenham Hotspur next season, in an interview with Dutch newspaper Algemeen Dagblad.
Van Gaal is just over two months away from leading Holland into their opening World Cup match against defending champions Spain, but has already confirmed he will quit after the tournament and is surprisingly already looking ahead to life away from the national side.
As rumours persist of a summer move to take over at Tottenham Hotspur the vastly experienced revealed why has decided to make a change, explaining: "Because after two years I'm totally sick of being national coach."
Spurs remain the most likely destination for the ex-Barcelona and Ajax boss, with current boss Tim Sherwood's position looking precarious to say the least.
Sherwood's deal at Spurs runs until the end of next season, but long-term contracts have not stopped chairman Daniel Levy making swift changes at any point in the past.
United have also been heavily linked with Van Gaal during a very difficult first season in charge for current Red Devils chief David Moyes, thanks to a fantastic CV which includes league titles in three different countries and Champions League success with Ajax.
Moyes looks likely to get a stay of execution at Old Trafford despite leading the Red Devils to their worst ever Premier League campaign, but with Van Gaal welcoming job offers from top European clubs expect one the game's most successful tacticians to get snapped up quickly.
