Premiership giants Manchester United are eager to sit with their coach Louis Van Gaal ahead of the New Year to have a clear idea of the Dutchman’s mindset. United officials are eager to know whether Van Gaal wants to exit in 2017 or intends to continue at Old Trafford.
Manchester United are eager to offer their coach a contract extension if he is willing to continue. Earlier, the Dutchman said he wants to return to his villa at Portugal to spend more time with his wife. Van Gaal is heading toward the final year of his three-year contract. But Van Gaal has also given indications to club authority that he might continue at Old Trafford. United management is pleased with Van Gaal’s performance.
Van Gaal’s team had to face negative reactions from fans after their goalless draw with West Ham in the last Premiership match. Despite that, the club is happy with the coach as he steadied the ship and intruded at the top four slot, regaining the Champions League berth.
Van Gaal has always mentioned that this will be his last stint in football and that he won’t last more than three years. United is aware that their city rival Manchester City are the top favorites to secure Pep Guardiola’s services. In such situation, club management is eager to keep the Dutchman as the team’s boss.
