According to The Daily Mail, Manchester United interviewed Ajax manager Erik ten Hag for the role of head coach earlier this week.
The Red Devils are now looking for a new manager, and Ten Hag has been named as one of the top possibilities.
According to reports, Ten Hag interviewed for the post on Monday, but he is not the only candidate in the running for the managerial position.
Mauricio Pochettino, Julen Lopetegui, and Luis Enrique are also on their radar, and formal interviews might take place in the coming weeks.
The candidates have been shortlisted by football director John Murtough and technical director Darren Fletcher. United wants to choose their next manager by the end of April, with the goal of taking over in the summer.
In our opinion:
United had a promising start to the season thanks to the big-money signings of Raphael Varane, Jadon Sancho, and Cristiano Ronaldo, but things have gone wrong in recent months.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was fired as manager in November. Under interim manager Ralf Rangnick, there has been some improvement, but not enough to keep them in the top four.
United is now four points behind fourth-placed Arsenal, who have a game in hand. To qualify for the Champions League, they may need to win nearly every game from now on.
With Liverpool, Arsenal, and Chelsea still to come, that will be a significant challenge for them. Nine straight victories may not be enough to secure a top-four position unless their opponents falter.
Regardless of where they finish, there may be a mini-restructuring of the first-team group this summer, with numerous out-of-favor and restless players ready to leave.
After failing to win trophies in five seasons despite the lavish expenditure, the emphasis may now turn to a long-term strategy. In terms of summer additions, United may choose potential over experience.
Ten Hag, 52, appears to be the appropriate guy for the position because of his ability to work with young players and develop them into potential world-beaters. Pochettino, on the other hand, maybe a viable option.
While the payout following his release from PSG may be bigger, United may value his time at Southampton and Tottenham Hotspur. Under his leadership, the latter advanced to the Champions League final.
