Earlier this week, it emerged that Manchester United were possibly looking at potential replacements for Erik ten Hag in the event that they decided to change managers at the summer.

One of the names being thrown around was England Manager Gareth Southgate.

Erik ten Hag has been having a more than difficult season at Utd failing to replicate even a modicum of the swagger and success he achieved last season.

Underperforming at a big club, especially United, definitely puts your job on the line and it remains to be seen what Sir Jim Ratcliffe will decide to do come the summer.

One of the managers being looked at is England Manager Gareth Southgate.

Southgate is going into the Euros, his final major tournament, with the Three Lions as his contract is set to expire by the end of the year.

A report from TEAMtalk reveals Southgate has now given his stance on the potential of being next Utd manager.

The report claims that Southgate appreciates the consideration albeit cautiously, seeing it as more of a recognition for the good work he’s been doing with England rather than being top of the options in the list.

What is for certain is Southgate wouldn’t turn down the opportunity were it to fall his way.

He has previously stated that no job nor team is too big for him. He backs himself for success no matter the job.

The aforementioned list of manager options is stacked with some young and very promising managers, just like Gareth Southgate.

Some of the other names being mentioned are Italian Roberto De Zerbi.

The Brighton manager plays some splendid football although his Seagulls have been somewhat struggling this season.

He is however reportedly happy at Brighton and a swoop just may not materialize.

Another manager being considered is Graham Potter.

This is mainly on account of his relationship with incoming sporting director Dan Ashworth whom they worked together in his Brighton stint.
