Ten Hag’s future at Old Trafford is currently unclear after a disappointing second season in charge.

It has been reported he could be dismissed by the Red Devils this summer.

According to ESPN, United are now considering three potential replacements for the Dutchman.

Frank is joined by Brighton manager Roberto De Zerbi and England boss Gareth Southgate on their wishlist.

The report adds that a decision has not yet been made on Ten Hag’s future.

However, the club are exploring their options regarding the availability of possible managerial targets.

Frank, who has been in charge of Brentford for over five years, guided the club into the Premier League in 2021.

He has since kept the Bees in the top-flight after their return for the first time in 74 years.

However, Brentford are currently just six points above the relegation zone in 15th place.

The Danish coach has over three years remaining on his deal after signing a contract extension last season.

Meanwhile, De Zerbi also has several years left on his contract, with a £12million compensation fee also included in his Brighton deal.

After taking over in September 2022, the Italian guided the Seagulls into Europe for the first time last term.

His success on the south coast has also attracted interest from Chelsea and Liverpool, with Brighton currently ninth this season and still in the Europa League.

Southgate could be an easier target for United, though, with his Three Lions deal expiring at the end of this year.

However, the former Middlesbrough boss could still stay on until the 2026 World Cup.

Having been appointed back in 2016, this summer’s Euros will be Southgate’s fourth major tournament as manager.

SunSport exclusively revealed that Graham Potter is in the frame.

The former Chelsea and Brighton manager met with United’s incoming sporting director Dan Ashworth recently.

We understand ex-Chelsea boss Potter is the favourite ofRatcliffe and his assistant Sir David Brailsford to become Old Trafford boss if the new Red Devils part-owner fires Ten Hag.
