Manchester United has turned back to former Barcelona head coach Luis Enrique to take over from Ralf Rangnick even though they are still keeping close contact with former Tottenham Hotspur head coach Mauricio Pochettino. According to reports, the Spain head coach has long indicated he won’t leave his post with the national team before the World Cup in Qatar later in the year.

It’s been claimed United players would like Pochettino to be the club’s next boss, having been impressed by his managerial career so far. However, reports suggest Manchester United want Luis Enrique and believe he ticks three boxes for them.
