Manchester United are currently looking for a new team manager, having replaced Ralf Rangnick with a temporary replacement until the end of the current campaign.

Leading candidates for the Red Devils shortlist were Mauricio Pochettino, Erik ten Hag, Luis Enrique, and Julen Lopetegui and The Athletic reported that the focus would be on coaches with experience in managing major European teams.

Pochettino has long been linked with a move to Manchester United and has previous experience in the Premier League after dating Tottenham, but the Red Devils will need to reach an agreement with the current Argentine club, Paris Saint-Germain.

Ten Hag has been praised for his work with Ajax and Eredevise, who will be vying for the fourth consecutive league title, and the Dutchman has impressed with the team’s ability to compete in the Champions League.

Luis Enrique – currently in charge of the Spanish national team – won the treble during his tenure in Barcelona in 2014/15, but it could be difficult to win La Roja as the Qatar World Cup kicks off later this year.

Lopetegui is also like a costume management bill in his coaching career as he has also cast spells on Real Madrid and the current Sevilla club.

Manchester United are back in the top four in the Premier League with a late win over West Ham this weekend and will hopefully Rangnick can qualify for the Champions League before the appointment of a new permanent manager in the 2022/23 campaign.
