Manchester United board has been in ‘direct contact’ with former Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde, according to Fabrizio Romano, a tier-one source.

Romano has clarified that the 57-year-old would only be considered as an ‘interim option’ until the end of the 2021/22 campaign should Man United fail to appoint a permanent manager.
Ernesto Valverde has been a free agent since January 2020 when he was controversially sacked by Barca despite the fact that the Catalan giants had been first in the La Liga table at the time of the decision.
