    Manchester United reportedly want former Chelsea boss Graham Potter to replace Erik ten Hag – after a meeting with Sir Jim Ratcliffe.

    After piecing together a run of six wins from eight Premier League games, which landed Ten Hag the Manager of the Month award for November, pressure has been piled back on him and United after an embarrassing 3-0 home defeat against Bournemouth and a 1-0 loss against Bayern Munich – which saw the Red Devils finish bottom in their Champions League group and eliminated from all European competitions.

    And with Premier League table toppers Liverpool to come on Sunday, potentially bringing another heavy defeat, incoming investor Ratcliffe may look for a change of personnel in the Old Trafford hot seat when his 25% stake at the club is confirmed.

    According to The Sun, that man could be former Chelsea and Brighton & Hove Albion boss Graham Potter. It's claimed that the Englishman is favoured by the INEOS boss should Ten Hag lose his job after he recently met Ratcliffe โ€“ who is said to remain a huge fan after wanting him at Nice.

    Potter has been out of a job since he was sacked following a miserable start at Stamford Bridge after just 31 games and seven months, despite signing a five-year deal in September last year. The 48-year-old was previously in charge at the AMEX for over three years, where he led Brighton from relegation candidates onto the doorstep of Europe.

    United head to Anfield on Sunday with pressure mounting on the Dutchman as he stares down the barrel of three consecutive defeats at the place they were humiliated 7-0 in March. Although Ten Hag enjoyed a successful first season in charge, winning the Carabao Cup and comfortably finishing inside the Champions League places in third, this current campaign has been hit by low after low.

    The Red Devils were booed off after their defeat against Bournemouth last Saturday and further disgruntlement followed at the full-time whistle on Tuesday when their Champions League group stage elimination was finally confirmed.
