Manchester United: Van Gal one game away from sack as Mourinho meets Glazers

jose the sun unitedLouis Van Gaal has one match to save his Manchester United career. The Mirror leads with new that anything other than victory against Stoke City on Boxing Day will mean curtains for the Dutchman.

The paper reasons that even victory in that match will only delay the inevitable.

The Star says Van Gaal has two games left. The Sun says he’s “on the brink”. Is that three games, then?

The Mail says Van Gaal could be fired before the Stoke game.

The Express says he’s “teetering”.

All newspapers say Van Gaal is leaving. They just don’t know when.

And all agree that Jose Mourinho will replace him at Old Trafford.

No word on Mark Hughes, the Stoke manager who once graced the pitch for Man United. Why not place him in the Old Trafford hot seat? Alan Pardew? Or why not really go for it and make Eddie Howe an offer? The media have no room for foresight. It’s all same-old, same-old. Mourinho to old Trafford. Zzzzzz.

The Sun goes further than its rivals and says Jose is already talking to United.

It looks like Jose to United is very much on.

Chelsea fans still singing his name must be gutted.
