The Manchester United managerial position has been in doubts over the past couple of months, with no assurance of ten Hag continuing beyond the summer.

As such, lots of managers have been whispered to take over the role and lead the club into a new era under new owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe.  One of these ‘whispered’ managers has been England manager Gareth Southgate, who will be out of contract after the Euros.

A report from Football Transfers allege that Man United bosses may just pass up on snatching up Southgate and their ideal manager would be Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti – although they appreciate the fact that he is impossible to get.

According to the report, they are of the conviction of passing up Southgate for Brentford manager Thomas Frank, who is of course not without his drawbacks.

There are obvious drawbacks – a lack of trophies and Brentford being only his second senior post in coaching after a spell with Brondby – but his ‘attacking style’ and ‘ability to identify and progress young talents’ is right in line with Ratcliffe’s vision for the club.

They add that it is Dan Ashworth ‘who will make the call’ on Ten Hag, the question then turning to who might replace him. And there remains no obvious answer

It remains unclear what will happen in the summer, as some reports also claim that United hierarchy are considering keeping ten Hag beyond the summer.

As per iNews, the new Manchester United co-owner and the director of sports at INEOS, Sir Dave Brailsford, are considering keeping Ten Hag as the club’s manager beyond the current season after he guided them to a memorable win over rivals Liverpool in the FA Cup quarter-finals.

A potential F.A Cup win and a Champions League berth will do wonders for ten Hag’s cause, and it may be enough to convince his new bosses to trust him as the captain of this new era.
