Exclusive: Man United explore shock move for 38-yr-old

According to sources that spoke to Football Insider, Manchester United is considering a deal for Kieran McKenna, the manager of Ipswich Town.

Regarding a deal for McKenna, whose contract is scheduled to expire in 2027, the Premier League may get in touch with the soon-to-be Premier League team.

Football Insider reported last month that Old Trafford officials are “concretely” interested in hiring him because they are extremely satisfied with the changes he has supervised at Portman Road.

Senior Man United personnel hold great admiration for the Northern Irishman, notably Sir Alex Ferguson, the club director.

The 38-year-old McKenna has also had a lot of experience with some of the younger players at Old Trafford, having held a number of coaching positions at the club in the past. These included managing the youth teams and helping Ole-Gunnar Solskjaer with the first squad.

If McKenna were to succeed Erik ten Hag as manager, United would need a careful reconstruction, and he would have time to put his philosophy into practice.

If Thomas Tuchel were appointed, there wouldn’t be the same latitude since he would be expected to start winning right away and make significant acquisitions right away.

Man United could appoint Kieran McKenna as new manager 

Ten Hag will be fired, according to information Football Insider disclosed earlier this month, in light of Man United’s underwhelming season.

After earning back-to-back promotions with Ipswich, McKenna appears to be a man on the rise, and he offers the club’s management an alternative.

But Tuchel has had a challenging season at Bayern Munich and will be leaving the team at the end of the current campaign.

However, Football Insider disclosed on May 15 that the Bundesliga’s biggest clubs are currently organizing fresh discussions regarding the German manager’s job due to their inability to find a replacement.

That means McKenna could jump to the top of Man United’s wish list in a new managerial twist at the club.
