Thomas Tuchel, Zinedine Zidane were considered for the Managerial role

According to ESPN, United briefly considered Leicester City’s Brendan Rodgers before the foxes dropped out of the Top 10 in the Premier League table and were keen on Mauricio Pochettino, but were worried Real Madrid would swoop in for the Paris Saint-Germain boss.

ESPN also state the final four-man shortlist included ten Hag, Pochettino, Spain boss Luis Enrique and Sevilla manager Julen Lopetegui.

The other four considered after the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in November are said to be Bayern Munich’s Julian Nagelsmann, Chelsea’s Thomas Tuchel, Rodgers and former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane.

Jualin Nagelsmann had become the most expensive managerial transfer ever when he moved from RB Leipzig for £22million in July and Thomas Tuchel joined rivals Chelsea after Frank Lampard sacked.

Zinedine Zidane was an option before, but he is likely to apply for the role at the France National Team or Ligue 1 side Paris Saint-Germain. Luis Enrique had to be ruled out as he solely focused on preparing for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar in November and Lopetegui was feared to be ‘another Unai Emery’.

Tuchel was also considered but ruled out leaving Chelsea in the wake of owner Roman Abramovich selling the club following government sanctions due to links with Russian president Vladimir Putin, who is leading an invasion of Ukraine.

With Pochettino and ten Hag the final two, Real Madrid were a realistic threat in turning the head of Pochettino this summer to replace Carlo Ancelotti and French side PSG could have demanded a massive compensation fee for Pochettino given his contract does not expire until summer 2023.
