Another historic club losing their manager is Barcelona. Xavi Hernandez, one of the all-time greatest midfielders to ever grace the game, has announced he will leave the Catalans at the end of the term as well. This is due to multiple factors (pressure, losing the dressing room, financial constraints) but La Blaugrana is on the hunt for a new boss.
Not just clubs without managers but clubs at risk of losing managers is at an alarming rate. Mikel Arteta is entering his last year as Arsenal boss, and even though there should come an agreement between man and club, none has yet come to fruition.
Roberto De Zerbi of Brighton is a wanted man and the likes of Bayern Munich, Barcelona, and Liverpool are monitoring his situation to see if they can pry him from the Premier League club.

Erik Ten Hag might be one to look out for his future as this has been a roller-coaster year with Manchester United. The Dutchman has one year left on his contract and with the new investment in the club led by Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s INEOS group, they could make a change to the managerial department.
