Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal is set to meet with Sir Alex Ferguson in the US.

The Daly Mail says Van Gaal will sit down with Ferguson for the first time over the weekend when the former Manchester United manager joins the club's pre-season tour in Washington.

New United boss Van Gaal said last week that he was keen to have coffee with Ferguson and is understood to be keen to pick the Old Trafford icon's brains about life at Old Trafford.

Ferguson has spent much of the summer on holiday but is flying out to America on Saturday and will be with the United party in Washington and then Detroit.
