David Moyes’ future is back in the spotlight, with the Mirror’s David McDonnell claiming Manchester United officials have met with Louis van Gaal.
United are facing up to a season out of the Champions League, with the team having struggled in Moyes’ first season at the helm.
Moyes has maintained his focus, and he spoke this week about spending money on revamping his squad in the summer.
But the Scot may not get the chance to spend, if McDonnell’s piece is to be believed.
In his piece, McDonnell wrote:
Mirror Sport understands United representatives—believed to include one of the Glazers—met with Holland coach Van Gaal at a secret location in Europe within the last 48 hours.
Reports from Holland last night claimed the meeting between Van Gaal and United had taken place, with the Dutchman sounded out about the prospect of succeeding Moyes at Old Trafford.
Van Gaal’s focus is currently on his job with the Dutch national side, with the World Cup a couple of months away.
