Manchester United are reportedly expected to complete a deal to appoint Netherlands boss Louis van Gaal as their new manager by next Wednesday.

Manchester United are reportedly expected to clinch the signature of Netherlands boss Louis van Gaal by next Wednesday.

The Dutchman has been widely tipped to take the Old Trafford hotseat following David Moyes's dismissal last week.

While Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti has also been linked to the position, reports have claimed that a move is unlikely after the Spanish side reached the Champions League final at the expense of holders Bayern Munich last night.

Dutch football journalist Thijs Slegers told talkSPORT that he expects Van Gaal's contract to be tied up by next Wednesday before the coach focuses on his team ahead of this summer's World Cup in Brazil.

Despite Van Gaal's impending arrival, reports have claimed that striker Wayne Rooney feels uneasy about the possible move as he is concerned that he may play second fiddle to Dutch teammate Robin van Persie.
