Last week, the press all reported in unison that Van Gaal was going to be announced but nothing happened and given that these reports are coming from Tancredi Palmeri, it’s certainly a case of waiting to see what happens rather than getting too excited.
However, it would make perfect sense if United were to announce Van Gaal’s appointment tomorrow.
Today, the new Premier League champions will be crowned but United announcing a new manager would divert attention right back towards United.
What United need to do is confirm Van Gaal’s appointment as soon as possible so that we can start looking towards next season with more certainty.
With the World Cup less than a month away, United need to try and move swiftly in the transfer market, so the sooner we can announce a new manager the better in terms of making moves in the market.
