London - Louis van Gaal has agreed upon a deal to become the next manager of Manchester United, Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf reported on Saturday.
The 62-year-old, who will step down as Netherlands coach after this summer's World Cup finals, reportedly agreed to a multiyear deal on Friday night.
De Telegraaf reported that the Dutchman, who has managed Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Ajax, would be given 100 million euros (138.3 million dollars) to spend on transfers in the summer.
United, who lie seventh in the Premier League, sacked David Moyes as manager on Tuesday, only 10 months into a six-year deal.
Midfielder Ryan Giggs is to take charge of the side for the remaining four games of the season.
