Manchester United have given their clearest indication yet that Louis van Gaal will be appointed their new manager after announcing Holland's World Cup warm up match against Ecuador tomorrow will be broadcast live on MUTV.

The Netherlands national team boss is widely expected to be named David Moyes' long-term successor at Old Trafford but after weeks of speculation neither the manager nor the club have shed any light on ongoing discussions.

But it would appear a deal is done after the club's Twitter account revealed United's official channel will have live coverage of the friendly at the Amsterdam ArenA.

The club have billed the game as Robin van Persie up against club teammate Antonio Valencia but United fans will be focusing on the man in the dugout, who is expected to be named their new manager in due course.

Holland will conclude their preparations for this summer's World Cup against Ecuador and Wales before travelling to Brazil. Van Gaal's side get their campaign underway against Spain, their opponents in the 2010 final, on 13 June.

The future of Ryan Giggs has yet to be addressed while talks with the former Ajax, Barcelona and Bayern Munich coach have been ongoing. The 40-year-old took the reins for the club's final four games of the season as interim manager and United great Peter Schmeichel has urged the club to ensure Giggs is placed by the side of van Gaal.

"I think that's hugely important - the foundation of this club is its history, its tradition," the former shot stopper told Sky Sports News. "There is a way of doing things. It's a lifestyle - it's not just a football club, there is so much more to it.

"Van Gaal is a very intelligent man, I'm sure he will pick that up very quickly. But I think it's important that he has that cultural assistant.

"Ryan Giggs has been mentioned as his assistant. I think that would be fantastic. You've got the young guy - a man who has been there all of his life, more than any other player in history.

"You've got the culture, the history, to feed right into the manager. He will come with his own ideas, but combine those two things - that's great.

"That's one of the reasons it's important to have someone next to him who understands what kind of club it is."
