It appears that Manchester United are currently doing the rounds of unemployed managers to see if they would be interested in the interim spot at Old Trafford.

Ernesto Valverde was mentioned on Tuesday evening after the 2-0 win over Villarreal in the Champions League, and Wednesday morning saw the emergence of Rudi Garcia as a potential candidate.

L’Equipe corroborate that the former Lyon and Marseille manager was ‘interviewed’ by Manchester United for the role, and one of the reasons why they have approached the Frenchman is his ‘perfect ability to speak English’, which is ‘important’ for the club.

However, he ‘isn’t the favourite’, with Lucien Favre, Paulo Fonseca, Ralf Rangnick and the aforementioned Valverde all also in the running.

Our guess is that a couple of those are ahead of Garcia, who has a decent track record as a manager, having also led the likes of AS Roma and Lille during in his 20 odd years in the business, starting in 2011 with a six month stint at AS Saint-Etienne.
