Ipswich Town majority shareholder in UK for talks over Kieran McKenna’s future – Man United News And Transfer News


Ipswich Town majority shareholder Ed Schwartz has arrived in the UK for crucial talks with chief executive Mark Ashton and manager Kieran McKenna over a proposed new deal.

Sky Sports journalist Dharmesh Sheth tweeted the same thing just a few minutes ago.

McKenna is one of the leading candidates to replace Erik ten Hag as Manchester United manager according to recent reports.

The 38-year-old, who has transformed Ipswich since his appointment, has caught the attention of many for his tactical acumen and ability to develop young talent.

His potential departure would be a blow to Ipswich, who have made considerable progress under his leadership securing back-to-back promotions.

The Irish coach is high on Chelsea’s list to replace Mauricio Pochettino.

However, McKenna is said to be a Man United fan since childhood and, according to The Times, will wait for United before making his final decision.

INEOS wants a young coach to work within its football structure.

The avalanche of news comes ahead of United’s biggest game of the season: the FA Cup final against rivals Manchester City.

Earlier today, The Guardian reported that regardless of the result, United will sack Ten Hag.

Fans were left baffled by the strange timing of the news.

Chelsea’s decision to sack Pochettino and move closer to similar goals appears to have forced United and INEOS to take swift action.
