London: Current Netherlands national team coach Louis van Gaal could be appointed as the new manager of Manchester United as early as Thursday, according to widespread reports in the British media.
Van Gaal, 62, quickly emerged as the favourite to become United's next manager after David Moyes was sacked last month and is reported to have held a meeting with player-coach Ryan Giggs in Holland on Wednesday. (Also read: Man United out of Europe after last-day EPL draw)
