As Man United slipped out of title contention over the last couple of months news has mounted that Louis van Gaal is standing on his last legs at Manchester United. News today has broken in the British press that the Dutch manager offered to quit the club after another poor performance as the club lost 1-0 to Southampton. Ed Woodward allegedly talked van Gaal out of taking the rash step and the manager will remain in the job for at least a little bit longer. Vultures are circling however and Jose Mourinho has already made it known to the Manchester United hierarchy that he wants that job. Further to that the club are also monitoring Mauricio Pochettino.
