The Dutchman looks set to be the next man in the dugout at Old Trafford, with some rumours having suggested that a deal is all but sealed.
Van Gaal is likely to be given upwards of £150m to spend in order to rebuild the club’s ailing squad, and is ready to bring in his compatriot, Robben.
The flying wide-man has been one of Europe’s top attackers in recent seasons, playing a key role in Bayern’s Champions League and Bundesliga successes.
However, the German giants are believed to be ready to sell him if a good offer is received, and the prospective United chief is willing to spend up to £25m.
Despite being 30, Robben is still seen as a top talent, and could form a deadly relationship with the likes of Wayne Rooney and fellow Oranje star Robin van Persie.
