Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern praying for change have got the news they were looking for, as it’s being reported that their uninspiring manager will see his time called this summer.
Van Gaal has faced speculation about his future ever since mid-December but his side have managed to get results when needed, including this week’s FA Cup quarter-final replay victory over West Ham United at Upton Park.
That meant United still have the opportunity to win their first piece of silverware since Sir Alex Ferguson retired, and the club could still finish in the Champions League places, but Van Gaal will be axed even if United win the FA Cup.
Jose Mourinho remains the favourite to take charge at Old Trafford, with the Portuguese boss returning to management in the summer, and many in the bar are expecting his imminent appointment.
Is this the right decision from Manchester United? Let us know in the comments below!
