Manchester United have sacked manager Louis Van Gaal with former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho set to be named as his replacement tomorrow at Old Trafford.
Van Gaal, 64, who just won the FA cup on Saturday leaves after two years of a three-year contract and is currently discussing severance terms with the club according to media reports coming through from Manchester.
Speculation surrounding Van Gaal’s future has been dominating media since the turn of the year with Mourhino being the likely replacement after being sacked by Chelsea in December following a poor start to the season.
Van Gaal joined Manchester United in a 6.4m a year deal after successfully leading Netherlands to a third place finish in the 2014 World Cup finals.
Should negotiations be completed tomorrow, 53-year old the Portuguese manager will be announced immediately to take over. He is expected to take the Old Trafford side back to the glory days under the great Manager Sir Alex Ferguson after a miserable period in which the club finished seventh, fourth and now fifth this season.
The future of Van Gaal’s assistant manager Ryan Giggs and the fate of other officials have not yet been verified.
