The Dutch Football Federation (KNVB) have confirmed that talks are ongoing between Louis van Gaal and Manchester United and said that a decision is expected soon.
Van Gaal is by far and away the favourite for the vacant Manchester United job having already held extended talks with officials from the club.
Reports suggest there have been delays because of discussions about the make up of the backroom staff but it won’t be long before there is confirmation either way.
“I spoke to Louis on Friday,” KNVB spokesman Kees Jansma said.
“He told me nothing is definite yet. However, there is something going on, but he exptects that not untill somewhere this week he can tell more.”
The necessity for a decision soon stems from the fact that Holland are meeting up on 7 May for their first World Cup training camp and Van Gaal wants to have his future sorted out before then so he doesn’t have any distractions.
