They did?

A “source” says the players “didn’t seem to have much time for him” following their 3-0 defeat at Spurs.

The Times has more, writing in “stars sick of being blamed by Van Gaal” that the board is split over keeping Van Gaal, or replacing him with Ryan Giggs or Jose Mourinho. It’s a lack of clear thinking and direction that surely undermines United.  As Manchester City plot a direction of travel with their recruitment of Pep Guardiola, United dither. The Times says, until things are sorted out, Van Gaal may limp on”.

But the Mail says Van Gaal is “likely to leave United at the end of the season“. Is that why he has been talking about transfer targets?
