The Daily Mail says it is understood that USSF officials have been alerted that the former Everton, Manchester United and West Ham boss would be interested in becoming the permanent replacement for Bruce Arena.

Former Chicago Fire coach David Sarachan was put in interim charge after Arena was fired last October for failing to qualify for the Russia World Cup.

Sarachan, who has been in charge for eight matches already, had his temporary contract extended earlier this month until the end of the year.

This is to allow the USSF, headed by General Manager Earnie Stewart, more time to find the right man to lead the US national team forward.

Moyes owns a home in Florida and has a good understanding of the USSF set-up so it's felt he could be the high-profile candidate the Americans need to lead them to Qatar 2022.

The Seattle Sounders have also been linked with the Spaniard, who would be their third 'franchise player', meaning he would be exempt from the league's wage cap with three of such players allowed per team.

Van Gaal, speaking with BILD, rapped Mourinho for the way he treated Bastian Schweinsteiger after he took over United.

LVG had signed the midfielder from Bayern Munich before Mourinho oversaw his departure to Chicago Fire.

Van Gaal said: "Schweinsteiger was of course older, but not too old. His body could not keep up with the high standards in the Premier League.

"Bayern sold him to us as a fit player, in fact he was so physically.

"How Mourinho treated me after him, Schweinini still did not deserve that. But it explains the situation, how it all stood around Schweinsteiger. That's a shame because he's a player like Luis Enrique, Mark van Bommel or Philipp Lahm. These are guys who are always present on the pitch."
