Manchester United insist that Louis van Gaal is set to hold his regular pre-match press conference tomorrow at Carrington despite mounting speculation over his future.

Van Gaal freely admitted that he is concerned about his future at the club after last Saturday's defeat to Norwich - United's third consecutive defeat across all competitions.

United's executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward met with board members at the club's London office today where the future of their manager was discussed.

Earlier, United said they had no plans to replace their manager but The Sun newspaper reports that they have already used an intermediary to contact Jose Mourinho, while there are also reports that Ryan Giggs could be asked to take charge this weekend against Stoke.
