Louis van Gaal is Manchester United's No1 choice to replace David Moyes.
News of the 50-year-oldâ€™s imminent departure broke on Monday in the wake of Sundayâ€™s defeat at his old club Everton. However, it is understood the club decided to look for alternatives after the 2-0 reverse in the Champions League at Olympiacos in February.
The Daily Mail says if talks with Van Gaal donâ€™t work out as expected, United will consider alternative targets such as Dortmundâ€™s Jurgen Klopp and Real Madridâ€™s Carlo Ancelotti.
At 62, Van Gaal is a relatively old manager, but after the experiment with Moyes, United are aware they need a coach with the presence and the experience to cope with a club of their size and profile.
