Louis van Gaal has signed a deal to join Manchester United, according to reports in Italy.

Italian journalist Tancredi Palmeri believes Van Gaal's agent put pen to paper on behalf of the Netherlands coach earlier this morning.

Van Gaal was unable to fly over to Manchester to complete the necessarily paperwork as he is currently occupied with the Netherlands national team.

The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich man has been linked with the role ever since David Moyes was dismissed at the end of April.

Van Gaal stated last week that he would be delighted to take over the 'biggest club in the world'.

The 62-year-old, who is set to appoint Ryan Giggs as his number two, is expected to hand Manchester United chief executive Ed Woodward a transfer wish-list before focusing on the World Cup.

Manchester United have already made a £27million bid for Southampton's teenage full-back Luke Shaw as they look to complete the majority of their transfer business before next month's World Cup.
