Van Gaal latest from Holland: Good news United as he reportedly puts apartment up for rent

Old Trafford Statues

Reported Manchester United manager in waiting Louis van Gaal is said to have put his Amsterdam penthouse up for rent.

The man hotly tipped to be the next Manchester United manager – Louis van Gaal – has reportedly made his Dutch penthouse available for rent, stoking the suggestions that it is only a matter of time before he heads to England.

Dutch newspaper Algemeen Dagblad reported on Saturday afternoon that the current Holland national coach has put his Amsterdam property on the market with a reported rental price of €3000-a-month.

They claim to have got the information from wensite Known Neighbours, and it is just another story that suggests United will soon have a new man in the hot-seat.

Ryan Giggs is currently interim boss at Old Trafford, and it would be no surprise if United are holding off making an official announcement about their new permanent boss until the Welshman has finished the job that was asked of him.

United face Southampton on Sunday afternoon, after which the preparations will begin in earnest for the next campaign – arguably the club’s biggest in many a year.

Van Gaal would certainly get them playing again, and if he really is on the move, surely there is only one destination…
