Manchester United and Liverpool are chasing 44-year old Premier League manager.



Liverpool and Manchester United are both interested in the Premier League manager, aged 44.Manchester United is considering appointing Brighton manager Roberto De Zerbi as their next manager.

The Telegraph reports that Manchester United is anxious to appoint the 44-year-old Italian as their next manager, but they will have to contend with Liverpool for his services.De Zerbi has performed admirably since assuming leadership at Brighton, and the Seagulls’ performances and manner of play have both been impressive.


His employment interest by Manchester United should not come as a surprise. At present, the Italian is regarded as one of the most promising young managers globally. Moreover, both Liverpool and Barcelona, both of which are changing managers at the conclusion of the season, are expected to express interest in signing him.


This season, Manchester United has encountered challenges in their quest to qualify for the Champions League due to Erik ten Hag’s incapacity to elicit optimal performance from his squad. Prior to the end of the season, the Red Devils may release him if the team’s performance does not improve substantially.De Zerbi may be the player that Manchester United has been yearning for ever since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement.

In the interim, the Reds are currently exploring potential successors to Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, who recently announced his intention to leave the club at the conclusion of the current season.


Additionally, Liverpool would do well to acquire the 44-year-old Italian manager. It will be fascinating to observe which of the two teams succeeds in convincing him.


Liverpool are more likely to qualify for the Champions League than Manchester United, whose project is significantly further along and which is still undergoing some reconstruction.


Following Graham Potter’s departure to Chelsea, another manager may shortly depart Brighton for one of the “Big Six” clubs.
