David Moyes
Age: 50
Current club: Everton
Pros: Has consistently over-achieved without much money at Everton. Familiar with the Premier League. Latest in a grand tradition of excellent Scottish managers.
Cons: No trophy wins in 12 years at Everton. Has little experience in Europe and an unremarkable record. Has never managed a club United's size.
Current odds: 10/11
Jose Mourinho
Age: 50
Current club: Real Madrid
Pros: Almost certainly available at the end of the season. Fantastic record with top-level teams. Keen on a return to England.
Cons: Seemingly destined for Chelsea. Has never spent longer than three years at any club. Will want major transfers funds.
Current odds: 10/11
Ryan Giggs
Age: 39
Current club: Manchester United
Pros: Ultimate romantic move for a romantic club. Has learned from the best. Has taken coaching badges.
Cons: No management experience. Change in role from player to manager could be a struggle. Entirely uncertain coaching credentials.
Current odds: 25/1
