Manchester United have this afternoon confirmed David Moyes as their new manager on a six-year contract.
Everton confirmed earlier today that the former Preston manager would be leaving at the end of his contract at the end of the season although no word was mentioned he had officially joined the Red Devils.
It is a huge job to fill to the boots of Sir Alex Ferguson who announced his retirement yesterday after 26-years at the helm, and going down as the most successful manager in football history.
Moyes is an ideal replacement for Sir Alex, if there ever was one. He has worked wonders at Everton over the past few seasons on a shoe string budget, enabling them to take part in European competitions, and flirting with the top four year after year.
He will officially start his new position at Old Trafford on July 1st, and will no doubt work closely with his predecessor who will move upstairs into a Director role at the end of the season.
The likes of Leighton Baines, Kevin Mirallas and Marouane Fellaini are a few of the notable players the Toffees have on their books who could fit comfortably into the United squad.
Manchester United acted quickly to appoint Moyes, and it will be an interesting summer at Old Trafford and for football in general, seeing a new man in the dug out next season at the champions.
