Manchester United fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to speculation that Laurent Blanc could be the club’s new manager.
Many United fans are not happy with the playing style and the results of the team under Van Gaal.
According to a recent report in The Sun, Paris Saint-Germain boss Blanc is a contender for the Old Trafford managerial job along with former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho.
“SunSport understands one of the main issues surrounds Ryan Giggs,” stated the report in The Sun. “The club fear Mourinho would bring all his own men in and jettison Giggs. Blanc, however, would work with United’s most decorated player.
“The long term plan is still for Giggs to be the boss in the future and the club does not want to lose him now.”
The former United defender has guided PSG to three successive Ligue 1 titles, but he has failed to win the Champions League with them. However, the football that the French outfit play under Blanc is wonderful to watch.
United fans have taken to Twitter to have their say on speculation that Blanc is a candidate to replace Van Gaal at Old Trafford at the end of the season.

Imagine having Mourinho lined up for the United job and throwing it away for Blanc. Hopefully untrue, but sure we'll know soon enough. #MUFC— jordan shuff (@shuff09) April 26, 2016
