English Soccer Club Manchester United has Officially terminated the contract of Manager Louis Van-Gaal following Club’s Victory over Crystal Palace in Sunday’s FA cup final at Old Trafford. The Dutchman’s departure has been widely speculated for weeks now as sources tell Mynaijainfo that Ex Chelsea FC Manager Jose Mourinho may take over as United manager soon. The former Chelsea manager – out of work since he was relieved of his duties at Stamford Bridge before Christmas – left his home in London at around 12.30pm on Monday.
Sources have also confirmed that United may speak to Mourinho’s representatives about replacing Van Gaal on Tuesday.

Manchester United later insisted that comment was referring purely to the season being “over”, rather than his reign as United boss.
Update in Manchester United Now after Van Gaal Sack:
However, after a meeting with employment lawyer Paul Gilroy QC at the club’s Carrington training base on Monday morning, it appears Van Gaal and United have parted company. The former Barcelona coach arrived at around 8.45am, with Gilroy – the man who negotiated David Moyes’ severance package two years ago – following about an hour later.
Sacked manager – Van Gaal has been in charge at Old Trafford for two years after replacing Moyes as manager and the weekend success at Wembley gave them their first trophy since Sir Alex Ferguson’s reign ended in 2013. United failed to qualify for the Champions League this season, with a 3-2 loss to West Ham at Upton Park playing a part in keeping them out of the top four. His win rate is the third best of all of United’s permanent managers at 51 per cent but this season has seen him attract criticism for his team’s style of play.
United scored an average of just 1.29 goals per Premier League match, having always been over 1.5 goals per game each season since the inception of the revamped top flight in 1992.
At one point, the team went eight games without winning and recorded just three victories in 15 matches at the end of 2015.
Club’s Form in the second half of the campaign was better and it led to the cup win but a fifth-place finish in the Premier League and failure to qualify for the Champions League looks to have been costly for Van Gaal.
