Louis van Gaal's coaching staff are convinced he will see out his full term at Manchester United.

Van Gaal's future is unclear, with United struggling to clinch a top-four finish in the Premier League that will secure Champions League football for next season.

The Dutchman has one year left on his contract, but could find himself replaced by Jose Mourinho this summer if club chiefs decide a change is required.

But Van Gaal's inner circle at United believe the 64-year-old is safe and that he will lead the Red Devils next season - even if they miss out on the Champions League.
