Erik ten Hag’s managerial success at Manchester United, marked by five wins in the last six Premier League games, has not shielded him from speculation about potential replacements under the looming Sir Jim Ratcliffe regime.

As the 71-year-old Sir Jim prepares to make significant changes in the club’s football operations with his £1.4 billion deal for a 25% stake, Chief Executive Richard Arnold and Football Director John Murtough find themselves in the firing line.

The departure of Arnold has been confirmed, but there are suggestions that Ten Hag might also be at risk if Sir Jim seeks a fresh start with an Ineos-approved coach.

Despite United vehemently denying considerations of replacing Ten Hag, recent reports from Spain resurrect the links to Real Madrid’s Carlo Ancelotti.

The Italian coach, whose contract expires at Santiago Bernabeu next year, has reportedly received an offer from an unnamed Premier League club seeking a new coach for the next season, with United believed to be the interested party.

Spanish journalist Juanma Castano, sharing this information on radio show Tiempo de Juego on Cope, dismissed the possibility of Ancelotti returning to Chelsea, Everton, or succeeding Pep Guardiola at Manchester City.

Castano emphasized Casemiro’s potential influence, given his previous collaborations with Ancelotti at Real, and highlighted Alejandro Garnacho’s admiration, suggesting both players are intrigued by the prospect of Ancelotti’s arrival.

Ten Hag’s interactions with Garnacho and Casemiro, as he seeks to elevate standards on and off the pitch, have added layers to the managerial dynamics.

Garnacho, despite being part of the pre-season squad, faced consequences for reported tardiness during team meetings, leading to his exclusion from the tour matches.

Casemiro’s on-field struggles have also been a point of contention, exemplified by Ten Hag’s decision to substitute him at half-time in a recent match against Brentford.

Reports from The Athletic hint at potential tensions within the United dressing room following Ten Hag’s remarks about wanting the team to “play more football.”

The perceived complexities in Casemiro’s relationship with the manager might play a role in the reported desire to reunite with Ancelotti.
