Their report suggests Tuesday will be the latest that Van Gaal is unveiled but that it could happen earlier depending on the outcome of talks.
The long and short of Van Gaal’s current situation is that it really is a case of when and not if he is announced as United’s manager. If he doesn’t get the job at this stage, United will be up a creek without a paddle.
With United’s best interests in mind, the sooner Van Gaal is confirmed the better and there’s an opportunity here for United to have the last laugh this season.
Anything to do with United is big news. We saw that when Jose Mourinho and Diego Simeone were asked about the United job in their pre-match conference before a Champions League semi-final.
If United announced the deal on Monday, any Premier League title celebrations would get pushed to the side and overshadowed by our announcement.
Come on Woodward and co, make it happen.
