Despite recent speculations suggesting that former Wolves manager Julen Lopetegui could be a potential replacement for Erik ten Hag at Manchester United, transfer news expert Fabrizio Romano seems to be out of the loop on this particular piece of information.
Known for his reliability, Romano, in an exclusive conversation with CaughtOffside for his Daily Briefing column, clarified that he is not currently aware of any concrete updates regarding a managerial change at Old Trafford.
While acknowledging the work of his colleagues, Romano made it clear that, as of now, there is no indication of contact between Manchester United and Lopetegui.
He pointed out that, despite credible sources suggesting Lopetegui as a candidate, he cannot confirm such developments.
Romano emphasized that, according to his knowledge, United continues to support Ten Hag, recognizing the need for improvement.
Regarding Lopetegui, Romano noted that the Spanish tactician has expressed a desire to work in the Premier League again after turning down an offer to manage Al Ittihad in Saudi Arabia.
However, beyond this information, there is no significant update at the moment.
While the situation may evolve, it appears that, for now, the managerial landscape at Manchester United remains unchanged, with Ten Hag retaining the club’s backing, despite the awareness of the need for improvement.
Fans may be divided on whether an experienced figure like Lopetegui could bring a different approach and spark positive changes.
