Juventus, Bayern Munich and Brighton & Hove Albion have all reportedly turned their attentions to Manchester United’s potential replacement for Erik ten Hag as the managerial merry-go-round swings into full swing.

United are still likely to part ways with Ten Hag after the FA Cup final, with a recent report covered by The Peoples Person suggesting that up to two European teams believe his fate at Old Trafford is already sealed and that he will inevitably be fired.

Amidst all this, Sir Jim Ratcliffe and INEOS were preparing for life without the Dutchman, hence United’s links with several managerial prospects.

Some of the managers thought to be on the Red Devils’ radar include Thomas Tuchel, Kieran McKenna, Roberto De Zerbi, Thiago Motta, Gareth Southgate, Hansi Flick and Thomas Frank, to name but a few.

According to The Independent, United face a battle to land De Zerbi and Flick, with Juventus and Bayern watching them.

On Saturday, Brighton confirmed that De Zerbi will leave the Amex after tomorrow’s game against United. It was felt that Bayern would jump in for him, but if Miguel Delaney is to be believed, Juventus are a far more likely destination for the Italian coach.

He is not the only manager wanted by United who is in danger of being poached. Flicka, who is understood to be desperate for a job at United, now wants Bayern. The Bundesliga giants have found it difficult to find anyone willing to take the hot seat at the Allianz Arena, with Xabi Alonso, Ralf Rangnick, Julian Nagelsmann, Oliver Glasner, Thomas Tuchel and Roger Schmidt turning them down so far.

Delaney reveals: “Roberto De Zerbi could join Juventus following his departure from Brighton, which was announced ahead of the final day of the Premier League season.”

“And after Massimiliano Allegri was sacked by Juventus earlier this week, the former Sassuolo boss could now return to Serie A.”

“Hansi Flick could now emerge as Bayern Munich’s successor to Thomas Tuchel, despite a series of setbacks in job talks with a number of suitors.”

The Red Devils are also at serious risk of missing out on the impressive McKenna, who Brighton have identified as someone they would like to fill the vacuum left by De Zerbi.

It was previously reported that United had made contact with McKenna’s camp to offer him Ten Hag’s job, but reliable David Ornstein poured cold water on the claims as he suggested a move was unlikely.

However, for United, she is concerned that their options are dwindling. If Ratcliffe and INEOS still intend to terminate Ten Haag, it is important that they move with speed and not drag things out.
