It’s become necessary for Manchester United to implement managerial contingency plans as they search for a permanent manager in time for the upcoming season.
If they fail to capture one of their long-term objectives, according to an ESPN story, the Red Devils’ leadership have identified Carlo Ancelotti as a short-term answer.
Mauricio Pochettino of Paris Saint-Germain and Erik ten Hag of Ajax are on Manchester United’s five-man shortlist, according to reports.
Russian businessman Roman Abramovich’s asking price is thought to be closer to the Chelsea sale price.
A permanent appointment for Ancelotti, who joined Real Madrid last year after a brief stay at Everton, may not be made before the 20-time champions of England turn their attention to him.
Is Manchester United the right club to sign Ancelotti?
Ralf Rangnick, the former manager of RB Leipzig, is in control of Manchester United till the end of the season.
The Red Devils aren’t exactly firing on all cylinders, but they’re still competitive and show signs of improvement under the German.
As a result, supporters will undoubtedly argue that Rangnick moving up to a consulting role and bringing in another short-term fix like Ancelotti makes little sense.
Over the last few years, the club has been reduced to a shell of its former self, and it’s become abundantly clear that long-term success will be difficult to attain with a succession of interim managers.
Decision-makers on either side should wait until a permanent replacement is in place before making any decisions. – If the club is serious about winning major trophies again, the answer is probably yes.
