Manchester United put German top of their wanted list

Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp

Manchester United have put Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp top of their list to replace Sir Alex Ferguson when the long serving boss calls it a day, according to the Daily Mirror.

Ferguson will be at Old Trafford for at least another 12 months as he goes on the search for another host of trophies to enable him to go out on a high.

It was rumoured the long serving Scot would retire this summer but after a poor showing in the domestic trophies and the Champions League, Ferguson wants at least one more crack at the treble.

Klopp has taken Dortmund from a mid-table German side to the Bundesliga winners and Champions League finalists in the space of three years.

The attractive style of play, shrewdness in the transfer market and breeding of youth players has particularly impressed United as their former first choice Jose Mourinho appears to be on his way back to Chelsea.
