The Extremadura coach could return to the benches hand in hand with the Red devils until the end of the season, according to the BBC and The Guardian. The intention would be to hire another long-term coach at the end of the exercise.
Manchester United fired Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Sunday and opted for Michael Carrick as an interim solution, who has been with the club since 2006 as a player and since 2018 as second to José Mourinho and the Norwegian, after hanging up his boots. English would not finish convincing as a medium-term solution, which is why the name of the Txingurri.
Since the bad dynamics of the former coach began, with four wins, two draws and seven defeats in his last 13 games, several names have come up for the Old Trafford bench such as Mauricio Pochettino, Erik Ten Hag, Brendan Rodgers, Zinédine Zidane or Luis Enrique.
The Argentine and the Dutch have reiterated their commitment to Paris Saint Germain and Ajax Amsterdam, respectively, with whom they have a contract until 2023. The Englishman is linked to Leicester City until 2025, but has a clause (9’5M) that would allow him to leave in case of paying it. The Frenchman is without a team, but his condition is to take a team before starting the campaign and the Spanish coach has a contract until December 2022.
In this way, Manchester United is left to opt for a provisional solution for the remainder of the year. Michael Carrick does not seem to generate confidence despite the victory (0-2) in Villarreal to seal his pass to the knockout stages of the Champions League as group leaders. For this they would like to have Ernesto Valverde, who likes how he managed the Barça dressing room, and who would have the complicated mission of raising a team that has lost four of its last five bets in the Premier League.
Already eliminated from the EFL Cup, due to the defeat (0-1) against West Ham in the third round, and with the duties done in the European competition, the urgency is to lift the role in the league, where they occupy the eighth place six points from the Champions League positions and twelve from the leadership. Fighting for the title has been difficult one day to overcome the third of the season, but being in the top four must be essential.
