EXCLUSIVE: What is REALLY going on with Jose Mourinho and Louis van Gaal at United

But after 26 years under the stewardship of Sir Alex Ferguson, there appears no real appetite for a third managerial change in three years, even though United will be wary of the threats of some fans who are claiming they will not renew season-tickets if Van Gaal stays.

That doesn’t reflect the views of all their followers who have seen reasons for encouragement as have, it is understood, United’s movers and shakers.

United’s progress to Wembley, by virtue of their thrilling quarter-final and semi-final victories over West Ham and Everton, plus the exciting potential of youngsters like Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard and Tim Fosu-Mensah has indicated the “process and philosophy” Van Gaal often talks about is beginning to pay off.

If Van Gaal delivers the Cup for the first time since 2004, Woodward and the Glazer family may well feel there has been enough progress to warrant a change and ignore the mutterings of discontent on the terraces.
