Manchester United have drawn up a shortlist of candidates to replace beleaguered manager Louis van Gaal next summer - with the Argentine duo of Diego Simeone and Mauricio Pochettino emerging as their prime contenders.

Highly experienced Manchester reporter Ken Lawrence has been given the inside track on United's next move, as the pressure to replace Van Gaal mounts and two potential successors emerge.
