Louis van Gaal unfazed by Pep Guardiola revealing he is Premier League bound

Guardiola announced this week that he is to leave Bayern Munich at the end of the season.

Manchester City are the favourites to appoint Guardiola, but Manchester United have been mentioned as a possible destination for the former Barcelona manager.

Van Gaal insists Guardiola’s arrival does not put any extra pressure on his shoulders, however, as he thinks he is secure in his job despite United’s recent poor form.

“Every manager has that right to announce (he is leaving),” the United manager said.

“I’m at the end of my career so for me it’s not so interesting, for me (Guardiola’s declaration) is interesting how I take care of Manchester United in my contract and after this season I still have one year to go.”

Who is a better bet for Manchester United: Ronaldo or Gareth Bale?
