Manchester United may turn to Louis van Gaal as a replacement for Moyes

Jurgen Klopp has worked wonders on a relatively small budget at Borussia Dortmund although the German insists that he won’t break his contract with the Bundesliga outfit in order to open talks with Manchester United.

Klopp guided Dortmund to the Champions League final last term and came close to pulling off an amazing comeback against Real Madrid this term, although the 46-year-old is likely to stick with his current club and resist the overtures coming from Old Trafford.

The 46-year-old told the Guardian: “Man Utd is a great club and I feel very familiar with their wonderful fans. But my commitment to Borussia Dortmund and the people is not breakable.”

However, one player who could be returning to Dortmund is Shinji Kagawa, with the Japanese star having failed to make an impression at Old Trafford and it’s clear that Klopp would be delighted to have Kagawa back in his squad.

Meanwhile, Ryan Giggs will replace David Moyes on an interim basis, with the latter having been relieved of his duties over the Easter weekend following Sunday’s 2-0 reverse at Goodison Park.

United released a short statement at 8.30am on Tuesday morning saying: “Manchester United has announced that David Moyes has left the club. The club would like to place on record its thanks for the hard work, honesty and integrity he brought to the role.”

“I have to say I find it repulsive the way these rumours break,”  Gary Neville told Sky Sports. “I don’t like it, I’ll never get used to it, even though this is the world we live in. It needs to be clarified pretty quickly by the club and they need to break rank and do what they don’t usually do, which is make a statement pretty quickly.

“The weight and explosion of the information coming out concerns me. That club, for 20-odd years, contained and managed information. It was completely off the scale like nothing else that’s happened at the club in 20 years.”
