Paris Saint-Germain boss Laurent Blanc is reportedly a candidate for the Manchester United managerial job.

Manchester United fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to speculation that Laurent Blanc could be the club’s new manager.

Louis van Gaal is in charge of United at the moment and has a contract with the Red Devils until June 2017.

Many United fans are not happy with the playing style and the results of the team under Van Gaal.

According to a recent report in The Sun, Paris Saint-Germain boss Blanc is a contender for the Old Trafford managerial job along with former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho.

“SunSport understands one of the main issues surrounds Ryan Giggs,” stated the report in The Sun. “The club fear Mourinho would bring all his own men in and jettison Giggs. Blanc, however, would work with United’s most decorated player.

“The long term plan is still for Giggs to be the boss in the future and the club does not want to lose him now.”

Blanc has been in charge of PSG since 2013 and has a contract with the French giants until June 2018.

The former United defender has guided PSG to three successive Ligue 1 titles, but he has failed to win the Champions League with them. However, the football that the French outfit play under Blanc is wonderful to watch.

United fans have taken to Twitter to have their say on speculation that Blanc is a candidate to replace Van Gaal at Old Trafford at the end of the season.
