The Manchester United squad have been told that Diego Simeone will be their next manager, reports reveal.
The Red Devils are currently fifth in the Premier League table, with Louis van Gaal’s position under pressure after a string of poor performances.
Jose Mourinho was the favourite to replace the Dutchman following his sacking from Chelsea, while Ryan Giggs has also been touted as a potential option.
However, The Sun claim that United’s squad believe it's Simeone that will be arriving at the Theatre of Dreams – either this season or in the summer.
“All the betting may be on Mourinho coming in, but the talk among the players is all about Simeone,” a squad source told the paper.
