Van Gaal rejects Tottenham as he becomes favourite to be the next Manchester United manager

Dutch national coach Louis van Gaal has reportedly rejected an offer from Tottenham, clearing the way for him to replace David Moyes at United.

It's looking more and more likely that Louis van Gaal will be the man to replace David Moyes at Old Trafford. The Mirror have reported that the incumbent Dutch national coach has rejected an approach from Tottenham Hotspur in wake of the Manchester United job becoming available, paving the way for him to take up the post after the World Cup in the summer.

The 62-year-old hasn't been in charge of a domestic team since leaving Bayern Munich in 2011, where he didn't enjoy great success but arguably laid the foundations of their current world-beaters. Such a rebuild certainly wouldn't go amiss at United right now.

Clearly he wouldn't be at United for a Fergie-esque stint, so bringing him in to shake things up before swapping him for someone else when he retires in a few years might not be such a bad idea. Not to mention that if there's anyone likely to get Robin van Persie firing on all cylinders again, it's probably him.
