The Dutchman will finally succeed Moyes at Old Trafford.
After weeks of speculation Netherlands head coach Louis van Gaal is set to be named as David Moyes’ successor as Manchester United manager within the next 24 hours, reports the Mirror.
Ever since Moyes was sacked on April 22 the Dutchman has been the favourite to succeed the 51-year-old at Old Trafford.
Initially Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp was also in the running, before the German ruled himself out of the job and left things open for van Gaal.
United chief executive Ed Woodward met with the 62-year-old back on April 11 as it became clear Moyes would be sacked after less than 12 months in charge of of the 2013 Premier League champions.
Ryan Giggs was the next to meet up with van Gaal, flying out to the 2014 World Cup training camp of the Dutch national side in Noordwijk on Wednesday.
The Welshman has been offered the position of assistant manager, despite rumours the 40-year-old would leave the club, and Giggs has accepted the offer.
Van Gaal had initially thought about bringing in Patrick Kluivert as his No.2, but has since been convinced by the credentials of the former Red Devils interim.
The club were keen to appoint someone with significant experience after the debacle of Moyes’ tenure at the Theatre of Dreams.
In van Gaal they have certainly found that, with the well traveled coach having won league titles with Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Ajax, as well as the Champions League with the latter back in 1995.
The Dutchman will be given an initial two year contract with the option of a third depending on results, with annual wages of £7m.
