Manchester United next manager odds - Klopp ahead of Van Gaal

Football News

Manchester United are reported to have met with Louis van Gaal to discuss the potential of replacing David Moyes. They have denied this, of course. And, despite the flurry of reports suggesting Van Gaal may be the club’s next manager, the Netherlands boss is still not the outright favourite to succeed Moyes.

The odds on Van Gaal joining Manchester United have hardly changed since it was claimed he had a meeting with club representatives, and most bookies still place Jurgen Klopp as the leading contender to move to Old Trafford.

Van Gaal and Klopp are placed at the same 6/1 price with some companies, but others have the Borussia Dortmund manager as the slight favourite. Van Gaal has also been linked with the Tottenham job and, despite the supposed interest from Manchester United, is 7/4 on to take the manager’s position at White Hart Lane.

While reports regarding Moyes’ future persist, it would still appear unlikely Manchester United would take the decision to sack their manager after only a single season with the club. Moyes was handpicked by Sir Alex Ferguson as his replacement, and still retains the support of the esteemed Scotsman.

There is also the backing of Manchester United icon and board member Sir Bobby Charlton, who points towards the fact that Moyes has a contract for six-years.
