Manchester United has confirmed that a thorough process is underway to appoint a new permanent Manager.
The Red Devils have consistently underperformed in the last five seasons, leading the way for Ralf Rangnick’s appointment as Interim Manager.
However, the German is set to move into a two-year consultancy role at the end of the season as search to bring a new face into the dugout continues.
Ajax’s Erik ten Hag and Paris Saint-Germain’s Mauricio Pochettino have been linked with the role at Old Trafford, but it remains to be seen who gets the nod from the Manchester United board.
The club’s Director of Football John Murtough confirmed on Tuesday that the wheels are now in motion during a conference call with Chief Executive Richard Arnold, saying: “We know that consistency is key as we strive for a top-four finish this season.
“I want to reiterate however that this is not the ultimate objective for Manchester United, and everyone at the club is focused on challenging for the top trophies.
“We are now conducting a thorough process for the appointment of a new permanent manager who will take charge this summer, with the objective to get us back to challenging for those domestic and European titles.”
Brendan Rodgers was also linked with the role, but Man United are believed to have ended their interest in the Leicester City boss amid the Foxes’ poor Premier League form this season.
