Cape Town - Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has seemingly confirmed his departure from the club after telling reporters "it's over" when asked about his future on Sunday.

The 64-year-old was in a bullish mood in the wake of his side's 2-1 triumph over Crystal Palace in the FA Cup final on Saturday evening, saying he hoped to remain on the Old Trafford helm next season.

Reports suggesting the appointment of Jose Mourinho as United's new boss have taken centre stage recently, with many press outlets in England claiming the move would be confirmed in the next few days.

And if Van Gaal's short statement is anything to go by, the move could be announced by the Red Devils shortly.

When asked about his future outside the team's hotel on Sunday morning, Van Gaal only said: "It's over".
