Who will be the next Manchester United manager? That is the biggest question around the club right now. Ralf Rangnick is only the interim manager till the end of the season, after which he looks set to take a consultancy role at Old Trafford. And the Red Devils will need to find someone to fill the vacant managerial hot seat at the Theatre of Dreams for the foreseeable future.
Several interesting names have been linked with the Manchester United job in recent weeks. Mauricio Pochettino and Erik ten Hag have been brought up most frequently.
But another manager who was believed to be in the running to become the next Manchester United manager was Luis Enrique. But now, it looks like that is not the case and he will continue with the Spain national team, at least until the next World Cup.
"“I can tell you Luis Enrique is 100 % staying with Spain until the World Cup, there’s no doubt about that one.“Of course the situation could change for summer 2023 but now he’s only focusing on the World Cup with Spain and I don’t see Luis Enrique deciding for his future during this process.”"
Enrique looks set to remain with Spain despite Manchester United links
Enrique has proven himself to be an excellent manager over the years. He was nothing short of brilliant during his time at Barcelona and one could argue that it was after his departure that the decline started at Camp Nou.
Since then, he has done an excellent job with the Spanish national team as well and rejuvenated them after a few disappointing years.
Thus, if Manchester United were able to bring him in, it would be considered as a massive boost for the club but it does not look like a move to Old Trafford is on the cards for Enrique.
He could potentially be available in the summer of 2023 but Manchester United look set to make their managerial appointment this summer itself. As a result, it does not look like the stars will align.
