Louis Van Gaal’s time at Manchester United is looking extremely likely to be brought to a premature end before the Dutchman’s planned retirement in 2017, and his exit before next season looks inevitable.
In the Transfer Tavern, many of our punters have been calling for the axe to swing upon Van Gaal’s head for a few months and the appointment of Pep Guardiola across the city has seen many state that United need to accelerate their search for Van Gaal’s successor.
However, it’t not as easy as many think as the best manager’s in the world are tied down to jobs, or in the case of Carlo Ancelotti are signed to a club from the end of the current season.
Having said that, there’s still a fair few targets out there for United to target and our punters have drawn up a list of five managers they believe are the most likely to succeed Van Gaal at Old Trafford.
What they can’t decide though is who the ideal successor should be, so we’ll leave that for you to decide in the comments.
