The hunt for Man United's next manager is in top gear as the Red Devils search for their next permanent boss.
United are in the market for a new manager to take over from Ralf Rangnick who is currently in charge on an interim basis.
Daily Mail reports the Old Trafford-based club already have a shortlist of four candidates under consideration.
It is understood the shortlist is headlined by prominent names which include Paris Saint-Germain boss Mauricio Pochettino.
According to The Athletic, Ajax's Erik ten Hag, Luis Enrique, and former Spain head coach Julen Lopetegui will all be considered for the job.
It is understood United will be keen to tick several boxes with their next appointment, with experience of working at major European clubs one of the top priorities.
Interestingly, all the four highlighted meet that criteria, with Pochettino the only one among them to manage in the Premier League.
Ten Hag, meanwhile, has won two league titles with Ajax and has enjoyed a significant rise to prominence in recent years.
On his part, Enrique won the Champions League and a number of domestic honours with Barcelona before taking charge as Spain's head coach.
Rangnick is set to move upstairs into a consultancy role at the end of the season paving way for a new manager to take charge.
However, before then, the German has been charged with the responsibility of helping United finish in the top four.
Premier League coach sacked
Earlier, Sports Brief reported struggling Premier League side, Watford, have sacked Claudio Ranieri as manager less than four months at the helm.
Ranieri was appointed Watford boss back in October 2021 and has led the Hornets in just 13 Premier League matches.
The veteran Italian boss could only manage seven points from a possible 39, with the side's string of poor results plunging them into the relegation zone.
