Southgate is Man United’s ‘priority target’ to replace Ten Hag

Manchester United suffered a humiliating 4-0 loss at Crystal Palace in their latest Premier League game on Monday. 

The defeat represented a new low for United who are now likely to miss out on any form of European football next season. 

Manager Erik ten Hag is facing immense scrutiny for the recent disappointing results and will likely be sacked at the end of the campaign. 

Thomas Tuchel, who will step down from his position at Bayern Munich this summer, has been mentioned as a favourite to replace Ten Hag at Old Trafford. 

However, Foot Mercato claim Gareth Southgate is United’s ‘priority target’ to become their next manager. 

There is no agreement between the two parties, but talks are going well and a deal is expected soon. 

Southgate is unlikely to be a popular choice among United supporters as he has failed to win major silverware with England despite the wealth of talent at his disposal. 

The 53-year-old also favours playing defensive football, which many believe is stopping the Three Lions from realising their full potential. 

Southgate’s previous managerial stint was at Middlesbrough, where he posted a 29.8 win percentage after losing 63 of his 151 games.
