Manchester United are happy with Louis van Gaal as their manager, according to Sky sources.

Reports in Thursday’s national newspapers claimed Jose Mourinho is set to land a three-year deal to replace Van Gaal as Manchester United boss at a salary of £15m-a-year.

It has also been claimed Mourinho is keen to bring in Atletico Madrid sporting director Andrea Berta.

Van Gaal’s future has been the subject of intense speculation in recent weeks, with United now six points adrift of a Champions League place having failed to qualify from the Champions League group before Christmas.

Louis van Gaal reacted to a reporter’s question regarding his position as Man Utd manager after the 1-1 draw at Chelsea on Sunday

That speculation has caused the Dutchman to clash with the press, most recently following the 1-1 draw with Chelsea, which saw Diego Costa grab a point for the Blues with a last-gasp equaliser.

But although United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is looking at various options for United’s future, any talk of a deal with Mourinho is premature.

It is understood there have been no decisions and no deals yet and United are relaxed about their managerial situation – especially on the back of another set of strong financial figures . - Skysports.
