Manchester United have held talks with Holland coach Louis van Gaal. The Mirror says United representatives - believed to include one of the Glazers - met with Holland coach van Gaal at a secret location in Europe within the last 48 hours.

Reports from Holland last night claimed the meeting between van Gaal and United had taken place, with the Dutchman sounded out about the prospect of succeeding David Moyes at Old Trafford.

Moyes is under huge pressure after a disastrous first season at United and former Ajax, Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss van Gaal is among the leading candidates to succeed him should he be axed.
