Manchester United: De Zerbi, Ex-Chelsea boss now frontrunners to replace struggling Ten Hag

Manchester United co-owner INEOS has reportedly narrowed its search to just two options as it seeks a replacement for Erik Ten Hag.

According to reports, Graham Potter and Brighton boss Roberto De Zerbe are the current favorites to replace Erik Ten Hag at Manchester United in the summer.

Ten Hag enjoyed a successful first season at Old Trafford, winning the League Cup, appearing in the FA Cup Final and finishing in the top four of the Premier League.

However, this season has seen a decline, with Manchester United crashing out of the Champions League group stage and struggling with inconsistency, currently sitting in seventh place in the Premier League.

What's next for Ten Hag at Manchester United?

Speculation suggests that new co-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe and INEOS will evaluate Ten Hag's performance at the end of the season, but the outlook looks bleak for the Dutchman.

According to the Manchester World website. Brighton player De Zerbe and former Chelsea manager Potter are currently the top contenders for the managerial position.

Ten Hag may need to win the FA Cup or at least finish the season strongly to retain his place at the top of the team.

If performance remains the same between now and the end of the season, Old Trafford could see a change.
