Senior Manchester United players have already decided their favoured candidate to be the next manager.

Manchester United are still on the hunt for a permanent manager – and the dressing room have made their decision on who they want.

Senior Manchester United players favour PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino over Ajax’s Erik Ten Hag as manager.

Pochettino has had a terrible week after watching his Paris Saint-Germain side crash out of the Champions League last-16 after being 2-0 up in the encounter against Real Madrid.

Despite his failure, he remains the favorite to replace Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford.

Ralf Rangnick is serving as interim commander and will leave at the end of the current campaign to work as a consultant.

According to the Metro, Ten Hag has reached out to United stars in order to gauge the mood of the camp, ahead of his potential arrival in the northwest – but the players themselves are more convinced of Pochettino’s credentials.

Though Pochettino’s only major trophy remains last season’s Coupe de France with PSG, the 50-year-old impressed majorly in the Premier League first with Southampton, before establishing Tottenham Hotspur as a big six team and taking the Lilywhites to a Champions League final in 2019.

United are potentially set for a summer of upheaval. 

Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to leave the club at current, while Paul Pogba is out of contract and has not yet decided on his future. 

Marcus Rashford has been the latest to be linked with a move away from the 20-time Premier League champions.

The Red Devils are currently fifth in the table with 10 games remaining.
