Manchester United have denied reports of a secret meeting with Holland coach Louis van Gaal.

The Mail on Sunday says Van Gaal is in prime position to take over at Tottenham after his World Cup campaign with Holland. But negotiations have slowed in recent weeks and it seems as though Van Gaal is unsure whether to commit in case the United job becomes vacant.

The alleged meeting between Van Gaal and Glazer was reported by De Telegraaf in Holland, a highly respected Dutch newspaper - though it has been met with flat denials from United.
