Report: Van Gaal gives Man United an ultimatum

The Daily Star indicates that the Dutchman wants a conclusion one way or the other in the near future.

Louis van Gaal looks increasingly likely to be named the new Manchester United manager – but a report in the British media today suggests that there may well have been a stumbling block in negotiations.

The Daily Star indicate that although personal terms are said to have been agreed, the Premier League side are stalling to evaluate other options such as Pep Guardiola or Ryan Giggs taking the job on a full-time basis.

The report states that the Dutch manager, who will coach his nation at this summer’s World Cup, wants a solution one way or the other in the very near future.

It states that Van Gaal has given the Manchester club an ultimatum and stated that a decision must be made by the middle of next week.

Van Gaal has also been linked with a move to Tottenham, while reports in France have suggested that Monaco are also keeping tabs on the ex-Bayern Munich trainer.
