Holland manager Louis Van Gaal wants to replace David Moyes as Manchester United's new manager, according to The Sun.
Moyes was fired as boss of United after a disastrous debut season in charge of the club. The Red Devils have slumped to seventh place in the Premier League and have missed out on Champions League qualification for next season.
And now, as United line-up a replacement for Moyes, it appears that Van Gaal is ready to take over at the Theatre of Dreams.
The Dutch coach will be a free agent after this summer's World Cup and is a reported target for Manchester United.
A source told The Sun: “Louis would love the United job if it becomes available. Manchester United is his No 1 choice.”
It remains to be seen as to whether the Red Devils hierarchy approaches Van Gaal in the coming weeks, but it certainly appears that he's ready to take the Old Trafford hot seat.
This will come as a blow to Tottenham, who had reportedly lined up the coach to replace Tim Sherwood at the end of the season.
Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs will take charge of the champions for the short term, with the Red Devils in action against Norwich City on Saturday evening.
