Manchester United have reportedly been on direct contact with former Barcelona manager, Ernesto Valverde. This is according to football transfer guru, Fabrizio Romano.

United are looking to appoint a new manager, following the sack of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Sunday, after the 4-1 humbling at the hands of Watford.

Mauricio Pochettino is believed to be the club’s number one choice, as he’s loved by many within Old Trafford, including ex-manager, Alex Ferguson.

But with Pochettino still tied to a long-term contract with PSG, there may be a little difficulty with trying to lure him back to England.

United are reportedly interested in Valverde as a back up option should they find it hard to lure Pochettino or any of the managerial targets in mid-season.

Valverde has been without a managerial job since 2020, after he was sacked from his role at Barcelona.
