Just two bookmakers offering even money on Louis van Gaal replacing David Moyes.
Holland boss Louis van Gaal is now odds-on to become the next permanent manager of Manchester United.
The 62-year-old was originally priced at 8-1 when rumours of David Moyes’ impending sacking broke on Monday.
However, after multiple national newspapers reported on Tuesday that Van Gaal was United’s first choice to replace the Scot, the two-time Barcelona chief was cut to 5/2 by most bookmakers.
Following another day of heavy backing, he is now odds-on with every bookie apart from Stan James and 32Red, who are both offering even money.
Van Gaal has won a host of first-class honours as a club manager, including the Champions League, five Eredivisie titles, two La Liga crowns and one Bundesliga.
He is currently in his second spell as manager of Holland, but his contract is due to expire after this summer’s World Cup.
Real Madrid’s Carlo Ancelotti is the second favourite to succeed Moyes at 7/1 (Boylesports), while Borussia Dortmund’s Jurgen Klopp can be backed at 16/1 (Coral). Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is available at 18/1 (SkyBET).
Ryan Giggs, who has been placed in interim charge at Old Trafford, is 25/1 (bet365) to keep the job on a permanent basis.
