It’s been a long time in the making, months have passed and every time we thought it was Van Gaal’s last match, the Dutchman kept hanging on to his position.
Now, after the Fa Cup triumph, Manchester United have decided to make the changes they see fitting.
Jose Mourinho is expected to be announced as the new manager of Manchester United very soon, it could be by Monday or Tuesday as various reports from trusted sources have claimed.
It was also reported that Van Gaal has told a [Sky] reported that “It’s over” after leaving the hotel and the Dutchman is surely not in a good mood after his Fa Cup win got spoiled by the fact that he’s not staying at the club for next season as he has claimed whenever asked about the situation.
What is now known is that it wasn’t Manchester United who leaked the news about Mourinho’s deal but it was in fact his super agent Jorge Mendes.
Perhaps the latter was too excited to wait a few weeks, or maybe there is something else behind it.
Now, in addition to Mourinho’s deal, Zlatan Ibrahimovic seems to be one step closer to making his Manchester Untied switch after he said that he’d join if Van Gaal leaves.
