Manchester United might consider Laurent Blanc as Interim Head Coach. The Red Devils are reportedly hoping to appoint the Former PSG boss as their new Head Coach temporarily. The Premier League outfit parted ways with Ole Gunnar Solsjkaer after United crashed out to Watford by 4-1. The Club is now hoping to replace the Norwegian with a renowned name and Blanc has emerged as one.

Darren Fletcher and Micheal Carrick are the two names leading to take over as the Interim head coach. Meanwhile, Manchester United are searching for a big name with some experience. Someone who can change the complexion of the team and bring the Glory days back. Despite having players like Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Bruno Fernandes, Solsjkaer failed to make the most out of the team.

Manchester United wants Zinedine Zidane to succeed Solsjkaer as their Head Coach. Meanwhile, Zidane is reportedly on a break and won’t take up any job until next summer. According to Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, Laurent Blanc is also on United’s radar but Zidane is still the top priority for the Club. The Red Devils are currently 12 points behind league leaders Chelsea at the 8th spot in the Premier League table.


Manchester United’s managerial role is a dream for a lot of high-profile managers out there. But, the Red Devils have struggled to find an appropriate person for this job since Sir Alex Ferguson retired. The Scottish was undisputedly one of the best managers in the world during his time. During his 27 seasons at United, Sir Alex won 28 major trophies, including the Premier League 13 times.

Manchester United became the most successful club in England since the Premier League Era, all thanks to Sir Alex. But since the 79-year-old stepped down at the end of the 2012/13 season things had never been the same again at Old Trafford. United hired 5 different managers since 2013/14 but Ed Woodward thinks they still haven’t found the appropriate man for this High-profile Job.

Meanwhile, Laurent Blanc represented Manchester United as a player between 2001 and 2003. The 56-year-old managed Bordeaux, France and Paris Saint-Germain between 2007 and 2016. He won 15 Silverwares with PSG including 4 Ligue 1 trophies but the Frenchman failed to impress in the UEFA Champions League.

The former France international has been in charge of Qatari outfit Al-Rayyan since 2020, boasting a record of 14 wins, seven draws and 18 defeats from 39 matches at the helm.
