Manchester United parted ways with the quote unquote, “chosen one,” in the form of David Moyes last week before handing the reigns to Ryan Giggs for the remainder of the season. However, according to one man on Apr. 28, 2014, the Red Devils are interested in only one man as the next to lead the side.

Reports from TalkSPORT have quoted Dutch football legend Patrick Kluivert as claiming that the current Dutch National Team boss is the first choice at Untied:

"He would be absolutely the first pick of any club, especially top teams everywhere in the world.

He likes to let young players make their debut if ready for it. The most important thing at the moment is I'm personally enjoying working with him and with the Dutch national team. We're going to the World Cup and hope to do well.

After that we'll see what happens and with me as well."

It will be interesting to see what happens in the coming weeks as a return to form for Manchester United could see Ryan Giggs put his own stake to the hot seat.

But, there is something to be said for the club being set on making a quick return to winning ways and the experience of veteran manager such as Van Gaal is what is believed to be in order for their next appointment.
