With the departure of David Moyes last week, all eyes are on Van Gaal who is estimated to have an almost 55% chance of being the next Man United manager.
With Ancelotti on an almost 17% chance of getting the job, the bookies are backing Van Gall, as are we at the Connemara Maths Academy. It will be a swift appointment with the Glazers less willing than ever to compromise.
Other no hopers on the list of want to be managers include José Mourinho with less than a 7% chance of getting the job while interim manager Ryan Giggs has an even less chance at under 5%.
Sir Alex himself is given a less than 3% chance, while Roy Keane is at less than a 2% chance although Van Gaal is rumoured to want Keane as his assistant.
Incidentally Lady Gaga has also been given a chance for the job at less than .05%!
