The Red Devils have set their sights on one of the Premier League’s top managers.

Thomas Frank has emerged as the main candidate to replace Erik ten Hag as manager of Manchester United.

The continuation of the Dutch coach at the club is in question due to a disappointing season in the Premier League, where the Red Devils currently occupy the eighth position, the lowest since the 1989/90 season.

The recent defeat against Arsenal at Old Trafford has intensified doubts about Ten Hag’s future, who, after the match, expressed an optimistic view of his team’s performance, causing discontent among fans.

Thomas Frank is the new favorite to replace Ten Hag at United

Jim Ratcliffe, along with his team, is already outlining plans for the next transfer window and seeks to make a quick decision about the sports leadership of the club.

According to The Telegraph, Brentford’s manager, Thomas Frank, is a strong contender to succeed Ten Hag. This interest is partly based on the pre-existing relationship between Frank and Manchester United’s co-owners, INEOS, especially with Sir Dave Brailsford.

Thomas Frank has been praised for his outstanding work at Brentford, leading the team to promotion in the 2020/21 season and securing their stay in the Premier League for three consecutive seasons, achieving a notable ninth place.

His ability to identify and recruit talent at reasonable prices, like Ivan Toney, Bryan Mbeumo, and David Raya, has been crucial to the club’s success.

Frank’s contract with Brentford extends until 2027, meaning Manchester United would need to negotiate significant compensation to secure his services.

Meanwhile, Ten Hag faces a crucial week that could define his future at the club, with the FA Cup final against Manchester City on the horizon. A victory could be his lifeline, but the board is already considering alternatives in case a change in leadership is necessary.
