Premier League giants Manchester United is set to announce a new manager before the end of March.
United is thought to have decided to name the new man in charge at the end of the season but with their Champions League future looking bleak, the announcement could be done early.
According to The Athletic, this is because United feels that the lack of Champions League football might affect their transfer plans in the summer.
🗣️ Roy Keane on United’s search for a new manager:
“You pay fortunes for players, so why not a manager? I don’t care who’s under contract; if you think he’s the right manager for Man United, go and get him. Pay the money. They’ve got to go and get the right manager.” 🙏🏟️ #MUFC pic.twitter.com/Yy13if7BMs

On the same topic, David Ornstein told Sky Sports: “That’s (possible lack of Champions League football) why they were speeding up the process… meeting candidates, whittling down their shortlist and hoping to get a chosen candidate in place as soon as possible.”
The club has been tipped to make wholesale changes over the summer, with a number of departures expected as well as some new additions.
PSG’s Mauricio Pochettino and Ajax’s Ten Hag are the frontrunners to permanently replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Old Trafford.
