David Moyes could officially be announced as the new manager of Manchester United tomorrow, to replace Sir Alex Ferguson who today announced his retirement.
Moyes met with Everton chairman Bill Kenwright today in London, where the Scottish manager was rumored to have expressed his desire to leave the Merseyside club.
However, Sky Sports News is reporting that Bill Kenwright has said that a deal is not yet done, and that Moyes will be manager for Everton’s match at the weekend against West Ham.
“Moyes has the right to make his own decision. He’s served this club well,” says Kenwright. The Everton chairman said he has no knowledge of Moyes making an announcement to his staff and players tomorrow morning.
Expectations are that Moyes will tell Everton players and staff of his decision to leave Everton for United before tomorrow morning’s training session, according to BBC Sport.
