    Club prepare for Man Utd manager raid with ‘list of successors’ drawn up

    One European giant has drawn up a list of manager targets as they prepare for a Man Utd swoop on their own head coach, according to reports.

    The Red Devils have parted ways with club legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and installed Michael Carrick as caretaker manager. He will be in the dugout for the next few matches, while a suitable interim boss is found.

    Four big names are in Man Utd’s sights to take over permanently – Mauricio Pochettino, Erik ten Hag, Zinedine Zidane and Brendan Rodgers.

    Pochettino has always been up for a switch to Old Trafford and recent reports suggest a move is likely. The Times write that he has told his friends he is keen to leave Paris Saint-Germain for the 13-time Premier League champions.

    Ajax boss ten Hag, meanwhile, continues to pledge his allegiance to the Dutch outfit. He insists he has had no contact with Man Utd’s board of directors.

    Zidane has immediately distanced himself from the rumours. The former Real Madrid boss is supposedly hoping to manage PSG or the French national team next.

    Finally, there is Leicester City’s Rodgers. During a recent press conference, he said the links with Man Utd were ‘not real’. It seems the Northern Irishman wants to continue his exciting project at the King Power.

    Sport Witness, citing De Telegraaf journalist Mike Verweij, provide an intriguing update on one of those manager targets.

    The man in question is ten Hag, who has won two Eredivisie titles, two Dutch cups and one Dutch super cup during his time in Amsterdam.

    Verweij claims Ajax already have a ‘list of successors’ for ten Hag, should the former defender leave for United.

    They are actively searching for suitable replacements and Lyon coach Peter Bosz is an early frontrunner. However, Verweij would not go as far as naming any other targets.

    This could mean ten Hag’s links with United are stronger than first thought, even though official contact is yet to be made.

    ‘Crazy’ for ten Hag to reject Man Utd – De Boer

    On ten Hag’s potential move to United, compatriot Ronald De Boer said: “He would be crazy if he didn’t do it. But it is not the best next step for him. It is best if he can go to Germany.

    “He has gained experience at Bayern Munich and speaks the language fluently.”

    ten Hag was in charge of Bayern Munich’s second team between 2013 and 2015 before being hired by Utrecht.

    By December 2017 he had plenty of admirers in the Dutch capital, hence Ajax’s approach.
