Van Gaal, 63, will step down from his current post after this summer’s World Cup and has frequently stated his desire to move to England, having previously won titles in Holland, Spain and Germany.

“My ambition is to coach a top team in the Premier League. I have never experienced the atmosphere in England,” Van Gaal told German daily Bild.

“I want to win the league title in a fourth country. That’s my objective and I want to fulfil it. Either that, or I will retire and move with my wife to Portugal.

“Of course, I like the Bundesliga a lot, but I have already won the German title. I now want to win a major trophy in another country.”

Van Gaal claimed he rejected the chance to replace Andre Villas-Boas at White Hart Lane in December because he did not want to job share but Spurs are reportedly still keen to recruit the Champions League-winner in the summer.

But, with David Moyes’ on the brink of losing his job at Old Trafford, Manchester United has also been mentioned as a potential destination for the Dutchman.
