After holding negotiations with Ajax manager Erik ten Hag, the Red Devils aim to interview four managers for the position of manager at Old Trafford for the 2019-20 season.
This is according to a report from the Daily Mail, which also states that Manchester United will seek to talk with Mauricio Pochettino, Luis Enrique, and Julen Lopetegui in addition to the current managers.
As a result, it's interesting that United reached out to Ten Hag first, perhaps implying that he's the frontrunner to replace current interim manager Ralf Rangnick on a permanent basis. Ten Hag has done an excellent job at Ajax, and it's interesting that United reached out to him first, perhaps indicating that the club views him as a potential permanent successor to Rangnick.
Manchester United has had an interview with Erik ten Hag.
According to a report in the Manchester Evening News, Ten Hag is the favorite to become the next United manager. But there's no doubt it would be a risk.
Despite the fact that the Dutch strategist has never managed in a more competitive league than the Eredivisie, the expectations at Manchester United will be significantly higher than those he faced at Ajax.
Pochettino or Enrique appear to be the better candidates from that perspective, but the latter is unlikely to be available due to his preparations to coach Spain at the World Cup this winter, while the Paris Saint-Germain manager is dealing with a difficult conclusion to the season at the Parc des Princes.
