According to journalist Alan Nixon, former Chelsea boss Graham Potter has emerged as a candidate to replace Erik ten Hag if the Dutchman is sacked by Sir Jim Ratcliffe after he takes over sporting control at Manchester United.

The British billionaire is a huge fan of Potter, and is willing to give him the United job if he is successful with his part takeover of the club.

Meanwhile, reports in Spain also claim that Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti has been offered the job, but he turned it down.

It’s yet to be seen whether Man United will axe Erik ten Hag, as he’s only in his second season at the club.
