Did Van Gaal met United or didn't he?

Tottenham Hotspur target Louis Van Gaal has met with Manchester United co-chairman Joel Glazer last week it is claimed.

Did Van Gaal met United or didn't he?
It is common knowledge in the Dutch camp that he has agreed in principle to join Spurs if the Manchester United job does not become available. His desire is to manage a the club most likely to win the league and with greater resources at their disposal that in United. He believes he is the best manager so the biggest clubs hold no fears for him.

Robert Pirez said back in February that the Dutch players knew he would join United if they parted company with David Moyes. Failing that he would be Tottenham bound with no other position available or likely to become available.

Ruud Gullit said recently that he believed Van Gaal to Tottenham was a done deal after the December meeting between Daniel Levy and the 62 year-old former Ajax, Barcelona, Bayern Munich and AZ Alkmaar boss. That has been leapt upon as fact when in fact it is merely an opinion, an opinion many of us share.

Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf claim the secret meeting took place somewhere in Europe, which is all rather vague. There is no confirmation of this and the latest noises emanating from Old Trafford is that Moyes will be given the chance to rebuild.

Manchester United have denied the meeting ever took place and are adamant it has not. That coupled with no real facts suggests a newspaper story to sell copies and that Tottenham remain firm favourites to get their man.

Perhaps it would be good for Spurs if United did pip us to the last Europa League place which may encourage them to keep Moyes a little longer.

The Dutch national coach has made no secret of the fact his next stop is the Premier League so speculation on other jobs such as PSG are just newspapers putting two and two together to make five.
