The Manchester United next manager odds are getting more interesting by the day...

With interim gaffer Ralf Rangnick likely to depart this summer, United are looking for a long-term manager to fill the void from 2022/23.

With big names having been rumoured, there are some fascinating candidates for the job.

Mauricio Pochettino (Evens)

The PSG boss is the heavy favourite to succeed Rangnick in the summer. Tottenham supporters still pine for the days of Pochettino, who turned them into one of the most exciting clubs in Europe during a five-year reign. Under the 49-year-old, Spurs competed for the title and reached the final of the Champions League before he was sacked in November 2019.

The Paris Saint-Germain manager is reportedly unhappy at the French giants and could be open to the move.

Erik ten Hag (2/1)

The Ajax boss is perennially linked with moves to Europe's elite clubs. The Dutchman was rumoured to be Barcelona's next manager before the Catalan club appointed Xavi and is always in the mixer whenever United are on the hunt for a manager. The bookies feel ten Hag is a hot candidate for the role, placing him just behind Pochettino in the running.

Ralf Rangnick (13/2)

Rangnick has made no secret of his desire to stay on as United coach beyond this season and the bookies believe he has a chance. Results have been inconsistent under the German, but there is a hint of a playing style beginning to shine through the gloom. Rangnick has agreed to take a background consultancy role when his interim contract expires in June, but he is also among the favourites to succeed himself in the Old Trafford dugout.

Antonio Conte (15/2)

If being linked with the former Spurs manager wasn't enough, United are also linked with the current one. Conte has only been at Tottenham since November last year but the bookmakers believe this could be his only season at the helm. There have been grumblings over a lack of investment and Conte never seems to stay too long in a job when he doesn't feel backed. Tottenham's loss could be United's gain. 

Diego Simeone (12/1)

United's foe in the Champions League round-of-16 could be their next manager, according to the odds-makers. Simeone has been Atleti manager since December 2011, transforming the side from La Liga also-rans to big fish. Under the Argentine, the Madrid-based side have claimed two Spanish championships, two Copa del Reys and two Europa League titles, all while playing an aggressive and disciplined style of football. If anyone could sort out a bunch if prima donnas, it's Simeone.
