Manchester United could turn to ex-Chelsea boss Graham Potter if they sack Erik ten Hag
Graham Potter is a contender to replace Erik ten Hag as Manchester United boss should the Dutchman get the sack, talkSPORT understands.
Ten Hag is under increasing pressure at Old Trafford amid a number of poor results this season, which has seen them already exit Europe and the Carabao Cup and succumb to seven Premier League defeats.
And should it be decided Ten Hag’s days in the job are numbered, Man United could turn to former Chelsea boss Potter.
talkSPORT also understands Potter’s work is admired by Sir Jim Ratcliffe, who is set to complete his minority stake purchase in Man United imminently.
Potter is also close with Dan Ashworth, who is being mooted for the sporting director role at Man United, from their days working together at Brighton.
Potter has been out of work since being sacked as Chelsea boss in April. He was in the position for less than seven months.
