Manchester United receive double blow after latest managerial update



| Last Updated:


Manchester United have received a double blow after the latest managerial developments following the conclusion of the 2023/24 Premier League season.

The managerial merry-go-round is picking up speed as we enter the summer break, and Chelsea has been the first to act.

Despite their strong end to the season, The Blues confirmed on Tuesday evening that head coach Mauricio Pochettino has left the club by mutual consent.

Of course, this means that another major club will be on the hunt for a manager this summer, and United might be another if United decide to part ways with Erik ten Hag.

However, if the Old Trafford club are to do so, they will already be facing stiff competition from the likes of Barcelona, Bayern Munich and now Chelsea.

According to various reports, Thomas Tuchel and Kieran McKenna are both options that the Stamford Bridge club are interested in.

Tuchel has been heavily linked to United in recent weeks but reports have stated that he believes he has unfinished business at Chelsea.

“Thomas Tuchel has a very high opinion about Manchester United, the project, the history, the fans and the quality of the squad,” Sky Germany reporter Florian Plettenberg explained. “He also has the opinion that his mission at Chelsea is not totally completed.”

Also, McKenna is another option that INEOS reportedly admire. The Ipswich Town boss worked at the club previously under Jose Mourinho and Ole Gunnar Solskjær and has since blossomed as a manager himself with The Tractor Boys.

Now, should INEOS decide to pull the plug on Ten Hag’s stay at the club, they have a direct rival assessing their own managerial options, which appear to be similar to those United are interested in.

It is important to note, as well, that United have always had links to Pochettino as a manager, and that could be another aspect to keep an eye on.

It is likely that developments are made following the FA Cup final this weekend but INEOS will need to make sure they don’t fall behind.
