Former Dortmund manager Luis Favre is another possible candidate, fit for the post at old Trafford. He managed Dortmund for two years.
The 64-year-old gave Jadon Sancho his debut and could play a big role in getting the winger to perform at a high level. He has champions league experience and have also managed Nice, Borussia Moenchengladbach, and Hertha Berlin.

Former Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney is in charge of Championship side, Derby County and have had to overcome some challenges with his team, including financial crisis and points deductions.
Bringing in Rooney would sound like a perfect match. And he will have to manage his former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo.
Though he would face an uphill task in managing United as the Championship and Premier League are completely different.

5. Micheal Carrick
The current Manchester United interim manager is also a potential contender.
The club have proven in the past that they don’t necessarily stick to their initial plan.
Churning out a couple of good results and winning the hearts of United fans, may see Carrick being considered for the post until the end of the season.
