AFP-JIJI

Netherlands coach Louis van Gaal has reached a deal to join Manchester United as manager after the World Cup, replacing fired boss David Moyes, a Dutch newspaper report said on Saturday.

Popular broadsheet De Telegraaf said “the national coach late last (Friday) night reached a deal with the top British club,” without citing sources.

Van Gaal, 62, “has been in talks with Ed Woodward, lawyer for club owners the Glazer brothers for a multi-year, multi-million contract,” it said.

Included in the deal would be a €100 million ($138 million) in transfer fees to beef up United’s flagging fortunes.
