The 63 year old, who has previously taken charge of European giants Bayern Munich, Ajax and Barcelona, has apparently ‘fallen in love’ with Man United and will look to lead the club into a new era of success.
Van Gaal has recently held lengthy talks with Man United’s owners and has outlined plans that would run until 2020, with his current deal running to 2017.
The experienced coach hopes to see out that deal but one imagines a lot could depend on if he can get Man United back into the Champions League for next term.
United have blown hot and cold this term though their 2-0 win over Sunderland on Saturday has lifted the club back above Arsenal into third spot.
David Moyes was unceremoniously axed after less than a season in charge but van Gaal may well last longer even if a top four spot isn’t secured, not least as one imagines Man United would have to fork out a big sum if they were to cut short the Dutchman’s £10m a year contract.
