Treble winning coach’s representatives open talks with United about replacing Ten Hag – report

Regarding Hansi Flick, the treble-winning coach, Manchester United has been in contact.

The current manager, Erik ten Hag, had a great first season in England, leading the team to the FA Cup final, third place in the league, and the Carabao Cup.

But this season has become a horror show; his team is currently seventh in the standings, and there’s a good chance that United won’t be able to compete in any European tournament for the first time since 2014.

The club has already missed out on qualifying for the Champions League for the following season, which typically means the end for the current United boss.

Naturally, there has been a lot of conjecture on who might be offered the position in the unlikely event that Ten Hag leaves, with names like Gareth Southgate, Graham Potter, and Thomas Tuchel all coming up.

But Hansi Flick, a German coach, is a fresh name that has surfaced.

It was thought that the 2020 Champions League-winning coach would be among the front-runners for the Barcelona head coaching position, but these hopes have obviously been dashed by Xavi’s unexpected decision to extend his contract by one season.

As a result, the former manager of the German national team might travel to England to continue his management career.

TBR Football claim that they “understand that Chelsea, Manchester United and West Ham United have all been spoken to in recent weeks about Hansi Flick.”

“Flick is open to the idea of moving to England and that desire has been relayed to prospective employers in the Premier League.”

“TBR has been informed by well placed sources that Flick is ready to return to club management for next season and his representatives have been doing their work across Europe.”

“Sources have confirmed to TBR that the 59-year-old has an ambition to manage in the Premier League and is attracted by the possible opportunities that could arise in England this summer.”

Kobbie Mainoo is a player Flick would want to manage. If given the opportunity, it was said that he would have been keen to take Mainoo to Barcelona in the summer.

The managerial merry-go-round that is anticipated this summer still has a lot of moving parts, but should United choose to pursue him, the 59-year-old would undoubtedly bring a plethora of winning experience at the top level.
