The Portuguese had been without a managerial job since December 2015 when he left Chelsea following a run of disappointing results in the Premier League.

The former Real Madrid boss guided the London outfit to the Premier League title during the 2014-15 campaign, but things did not work out according to plan this past season.

Meanwhile, United won the FA Cup under Van Gaal this past season, but the Red Devils failed to finish in the top four of the Premier League.
