Louis van Gaal tells pals he's joining Liverpool

Louis van Gaal expects to be confirmed by Liverpool to be joining them this week. The Sun on Sunday says he will not be drawn on whether it is as manager or sporting director.

Dutchman Van Gaal had a series of conference calls with Liverpool's owners this week and has told those close to him that he is considering an offer.

Liverpool initially made their move for the former Barcelona and Holland boss with the sporting director's role in mind.

But Van Gaal, 60, has made it clear he would prefer to succeed sacked manager Kenny Dalglish.
