Manchester United are still considering a range of managerial candidates, despite having held positive talks with Louis van Gaal, according to reports from Sky Sports.

The Holland coach is widely seen as the favourite to succeed David Moyes as the Red Devils’ next permanent boss, with some rumours from his homeland having suggested over the weekend that a deal was in place.

Van Gaal will be responsible for the Oranje during the World Cup, but is set to be free to take full control at Old Trafford after the tournament.

However despite suggestions that initial talks with the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich coach went well, United are still looking at other options.

Interim chief Ryan Giggs is seen as a candidate even though he lacks experience, with the club’s fans appearing to be in favour of seeing one of their idols in charge on a full basis.

Borussia Dortmund’s Jurgen Klopp is also in the frame despite talking down the opportunity, while Atletico Madrid gaffer Diego Simeone is being spoken about.

One man who seems to have ruled himself out is Carlo Ancelotti, who says that he is happy to stay at Real Madrid:

“I haven’t spoken with anyone and I don’t need to speak to anyone. I’m very happy here.”

    Ryan Giggs should never be given the managerial role at Man Utd cause he is a terrible role model for the young ones coming through the academy. He is a serial shagger that didn’t even let his sister in law get away. Just imagine him trying to motivate the players in the dressing room when he is shagging their model wives.

    Just remember the John Terry incident with his fellow team mate and compound it 10 times cause this is the manager we are talking about.

    Giggsy is the best candidate for the job. United is like no other club in the world. Management needs to take into consideration the opinion of fans and make Giggsy the the Manager.
