Netherlands coach is waiting to see if the Manchester United job becomes available before accepting another job offer, according to Dutch football expert Marcel van der Kraan.

Van Gaal is set to leave his position as manager of the Netherlands after the World Cup regardless of their success and is looking to manage in the Premier League.

Tottenham is rumoured to be the most likely destination for the 62-year-old but rumours regarding a potential position at Manchester United refuse to go away.

According to Van der Kraan, Van Gaal is holding off offers from White Hart Lane and elsewhere to keep himself available should Manchester United sack David Moyes.

He told talkSPORT: "He wants the biggest and the best because he thinks he is the world's greatest manager."

"He is waiting for Manchester United."

Van Gaal was seen in the stands at a Dutch league game with Robin van Persie last week and the player is believed to be keen to see his national coach installed as manager at Old Trafford.

Reports from his native Holland emerged yesterday suggesting that Van Persie had personally told Van Gaal not to agree to manage another club until Moyes' position at Old Trafford is clarified.

Despite a poor start to life as Sir Alex Ferguson's successor, it is believed that Manchester United officials are prepared to stick by the man that Ferguson himself chose.
