Pressure mounts on Manchester United as two managerial candidates attract offers from Europe’s top clubs

Pressure is growing on Manchester United to make a decision over their new manager.

We all know that transfer targets will want to know who the next manager will be, and so will all of the current players, especially some of those with expiring contracts.

Erik ten Hag and Mauricio Pochettino are the leading candidates, but there has been mentions of Luis Enrique and Julen Lopetegui in an array of reports.

Any suggestions that Paul Pogba is waiting on the next manager before deciding his future should be dismissed because the French midfielder has played United over his contract for over a year at this stage.

An interview was held on Monday with Ten Hag, but the Daily Mail claims Pochettino spoke to United’s football director John Murtough some weeks ago and he will be interviewed soon, though the PSG boss is waiting to hear back.

However, the same report states that Pochettino could receive an approach from Real Madrid in the near future. Carlo Ancelotti has guided the Spanish giants to the top of La Liga and into the Champions League quarter-finals, but apparently they have not been impressed by the team’s style of play which sounds absurd.

It is also noted that Ten Hag has spoken to two other European clubs that play regularly in the Champions League, and has a firm offer from one that interests him, but not for one second do I think he would snub Manchester United.
