Manchester United seems to be preparing for the departure of Erik ten Hag. The manager won the FA Cup with his team on Saturday at the expense of Manchester City, but that does not mean that he will definitely stay with the Red Devils. On Sunday, The Telegraph revealed that the club has already spoken with Thomas Frank and Mauricio Pochettino about Ten Hag’s succession.

Ten Hag has been under contract with Manchester United since July 2022. In his first season, the manager managed to win the EFL Cup, but this season the pressure on Ten Hag has increased due to persistent poor results.

In the Premier League, Manchester United finished in eighth place, the lowest final ranking since 1990. In the European context, the season was already over before the winter, as the team finished in the group behind Bayern Munich, FC Copenhagen and Galatasaray. A renewal of the EFL Cup was no longer possible after a 0-3 home defeat against Newcastle United in November.

On Saturday, Ten Hag managed to surprise somewhat by winning the FA Cup at the expense of city rivals Manchester City. By winning the cup, Manchester United also immediately won a ticket to the group stage of the Europa League.

Now the management of Man United is busy preparing for next season. Ten Hag, who went on holiday on Sunday, would like clarity and has asked the club to confirm his stay or dismissal in the coming days.

In any case, Manchester United has already had discussions with Frank and Pochettino’s agents in recent days. The club has also already spoken with Thomas Tuchel, but he is not currently seen as the most suitable option.

Previously, Kieran McKenna had also been spoken to. McKenna led Ipswich Town to the Premier League and he is also in the interest of Chelsea.
