Fabrizio Romano provides Update on Manchester United managerial pursuit

Manchester United will make a decision on their next manager in the coming weeks, according to Fabrizio Romano, and it will be the largest decision the club has made in the last ten years.

Following this week’s Champions League defeat to Atletico Madrid, United’s season is all but finished, and Ralf Rangnick’s club now has an uphill battle to clinch a place in Europe’s best competition next season.

The Red Devils are presently fifth, one bit short of Arsenal, who have two games in hand. 

The Gunners’ setback to Liverpool on Wednesday, though, has given United a glimmer of optimism, and the two sides face at the Emirates in April in what will undoubtedly be a season-defining showdown.

Rangnick will move upstairs  at the conclusion of the season after taking over on an interim basis from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in November, and Erik ten Hag and Mauricio Pochettino are the clear favorites to take over permanently.

The United hierarchy is fully aware that they want to make a choice as soon as possible to guarantee that the new manager has enough time to achieve his transfer targets ahead of their first season, and Romano feels that a decision might be made within the next few weeks.

Speaking on his YouTube channel, the renowned journalist said;

Manchester United are already starting some discussions. We know that Erik ten Hag and Mauricio Pochettino are in the list as frontrunners, but it’s not a closed race.

“Other managers are in the list. For example, Julen Lopetegui from Sevilla is a manager that has always been on Manchester United’s list. He could be an outsider.

“Manchester United are exploring the managers market and in the coming weeks they will make a final decision on who is the right man, with different skills and different potential impact on Manchester United.

“It is the biggest decision in the club in the last 10 years. Why? Because now Manchester United cannot be wrong again – on the manager, on the project, on the signings.

“It is really important that this manager will have to have a good relationship with Ralf Rangnick because he is going to be a consultant of the board and be part of the club in the coming two years.

“That is why Rangnick will be involved in this process and he will be involved in the transfers too.”

Romano then addressed the present roster and the effect the incoming manager will have on the players who are already at the club.

“It is important to say that it (new manager) is going to have an impact on many players.

“We know about Cristiano Ronaldo. Cristiano is focusing on Manchester United’s season, but he wants to know about the project. He wants to know about the new manager.

“Paul Pogba. He’s out of contract and he has chances to leave the club as a free agent, but he is waiting for the new manager to make a decision.”

United has been associated with a slew of talent in recent weeks, and Romano claims that the club is eager to bring in a new manager as quickly as possible in order to make headway in the market.

“Then, the new signings. This is a key point for Manchester United.

“For example, Akanji of Borussia Dortmund is a player that they already internally discussed at Man United, but they are not making any bid or starting any conversations with Borussia Dortmund because they still don’t know who will be the manager and if they will like this kind of player.

“This is why this decision is super important to Manchester United and this is why we are entering into the final moment for the choice which will change Man United history.”
