Next Manchester United Manager Odds: Mauricio Pochettino Favored to Become New Boss at Old Trafford

Manchester United is back on the prowl for a top manager after a disappointing end to the season, with the writing on the wall for Erik Ten Hag to be sacked this weekend and quickly replaced.

While the decision hasn't officially been announced, it is all but over for Erik Ten Hag after the FA Cup Final on Saturday against Manchester City. Both sides have seemingly agreed to part ways after the team finished eight in the Premier League table despite a once-promising start.

Now, Mauricio Pochettino is in line to take over the job next week after getting passed over two years ago. The Former PSG and Chelsea boss had coveted the Manchester United job a few seasons back, and now may have his chance to finally grab it as the stars align.

Sportsbooks seem to think there is a good chance that this deal goes through as well, currently listing Pochettino as the leading favorite with +138 odds. However, there are some exciting names on the list with strong experience that could make the grade if their top choice falls through.

So, let's take a look at the latest odds to see who will be the next manager of Manchester United.

Next Manchester United Manager

Mauricio Pochettino (+138)

The rumor mill is swirling in Manchester that the next coach is all but decided, which would explain the heavily favored odds for Mauricio Pochettino as compared to the field. He sits at +138 odds in the best spot, with other sportsbooks having him as a minus odds leader. Pochettino spent five years at Tottenham before moving on to Paris Saint-Germain in 2021, and then one year at Chelsea in this past season. After a sixth-place finish that showed promise at times, the two sides decided to part ways, but many teams will be after Pochettino, and Manchester United will hope to land him.

Gareth Southgate (+600)

Gareth Southgate is an interesting choice, and is currently tied to the potential Manchester United opening. Southgate has been the manager of the English national team since 2016, one of the longer-serving coaches in the history of the team. His contract is set to expire in December, and many are speculating if he will consider joining Man United. However, Southgate has stipulated that he won't speak to any clubs ahead of the 2024 Euros next month, so Man U will have to wait if they are interested in Southgate's services.

Thomas Tuchel (+600)

Thomas Tuchel is another former Chelsea manager who is on the radar, having managed the club just ahead of Pochettino. He then spent part of the next season at Bayern Munich after joining in March of 2023, but his stay was short-lived and he is on the way out of the club right now. He has a strong record of success at many clubs over the years, but has failed to find his footing for any significant amount of time in his most recent jobs. There are also rumors floating around about his return to Chelsea, so anything is on the table for Tuchel here.
