The 61-year-old said on Friday he will leave his post with the Dutch national team after the 2014 tournament in Brazil, having grown tired of the nature of his work at an international level.
Speaking at a press conference ahead of his side's summer trip to Asia, Van Gaal told reporters: "I took over as national coach with the ambition of going to a World Cup or a European Championship.
"That I have never done before and I'm doing everything to make sure I can achieve that. After that I will leave. I'm constantly having to borrow other coach's players. That I don't enjoy."
Calling time on a career which has taken in the likes of Ajax, Barcelona and Bayern Munich may well be on his agenda, but he added: "Unless a nice Premier League side comes along... If that happens, I will have to discuss it with my wife."
