It has been widely regarded as a done deal, with many claiming that an agreement has already been reached between the two that will see him take over the reins from Ryan Giggs following Holland’s Wold Cup campaign this summer.
However, he has seemingly dispelled those rumours by claiming that he has reached no agreement with the club and may not be taking over at all.
“We have not reached that stage yet [of signing a contract],” said van Gaal.
“It’s not even clear if we will reach that stage. One has to wait.
“Some of the things that have been suggested are absolutely untrue.”
It was believed that the club would announce Van Gaal’s arrival at some point over the coming week, though the two parties were still said to be locked in negotiations with an announcement coming towards the end of the month.
