With the departure of David Moyes from Manchester United earlier this week, the rumour mill is in full swing as the club look for a new replacement.

Doing the rounds is that Louis Van Gaal, who is presently in charge of the Dutch National team, is being lined up for the United job and with Paddy Power Bookmakers offering odds of 4/6 ON.

However before you go putting your life savings on him heading to Old Trafford after the World Cup, Carlo Ancelotti is shortening in the betting markets and is now as little as 5/1 to get the job and it should be noted that David Levy, the Tottenham chairman, has been reported to have been in talks with Van Gaal!

Jose Mourinho is now 11/1 but having been passed over last season in favour of Moyes, it seems unlikely that he would now leave Chelsea and head north particularly with the good Champions League run the club are currently on.

Ryan Giggs, the interim manager, has gained all his coaching badges but with the lack of experience has been all but ruled out by the club but with four games left this season, an impressive run from the current Champions could see him come into the picture a bit more and if you like his chances, he is 20/1.
