He's back? Chelsea board actively discussing Van Gaal appointment

Former Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal is being discussed at Chelsea as a potential successor for Antonio Conte.

The Mirror says the Stamford Bridge hierarchy have ­considered the experienced Dutchman if Conte's relationship with the London club completely breaks down.

Conte has admitted that his bags are packed after a season spent fighting battles with his Blues bosses. And Van Gaal could be asked to step in on an interim basis if the Italian leaves.

Van Gaal, 66, is looking for a short-term job – and is desperate to have another crack at the Premier League after being axed by Manchester United in 2016, just a day after winning the FA Cup.

If Chelsea and Conte part company, LVG would offer a safe pair of hands until the end of the season, when the Blues would make a permanent appointment.

Van Gaal has said: “I'd be interested in a Premier League club where I'd have the chance to get one over on Manchester United."
