If you want to take a bet on Louis Van Gaal’s club after the world cup then you have a number of options with the 62 year old Dutchman favourite to take over at White Hart Lane and also at Old Trafford. If you take any notice of these markets and are favouring Van Gaal for the position then he is, at least, odds on for the Spurs vacancy and a relatively distant 7/1 to succeed David Moyes at Manchester United.
But there will no doubt be other interested parties from around Europe and this afternoon, a story has emerged linking the Netherlands national coach with a role at Spartak Moscow who made him an offer back in 2011.
Van Gaal turned that down but with Spartak fading in the Russian title race, the press are hinting that the Moscow based club will renew their interest this summer.
England does seem a more likely destination but Ruud Gullit’s claims of a ‘done deal’ may be premature. A switch to Spartak Moscow could also be wide of the mark and the key to all of this looks to lie in Manchester where United owners have to decide whether David Moyes is worth another chance.
