Manchester United have reportedly added Wolverhampton Wanderers head coach Nuno Espírito Santo to their list of potential successors for current manager Jose Mourinho, according to Bild (via the Express).

The Premier League side, who defeated Burnley 2-0 at Turf Moor last weekend to climb up to tenth in the league standings, have made an underwhelming start to the 2018-19 campaign, losing back to-back games against Brighton and Hove Albion and Tottenham Hotspur respectively.

With speculation arising over the future of the ‘Special One’ at Old Trafford already this term, the publication claims the club have added the Wolves boss to a list of candidates that could replace Mourinho, should he be sacked at The Theatre of Dreams.

Former Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has already been linked with the job at United, although the club insist they fully support Mourinho and are not looking to appoint a new manager.

Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Nuno Espirito Santo.

Nuno, 44, was appointed head coach of Wolves back in May 2017, signing a three-year contract at Molineux.

He led the club to the Championship title last season, finishing nine points clear of runners-up Cardiff City.

Wolves sit just one place and one point behind United in the Premier League table this term after defeating West Ham United 1-0 last time out.
