Some Manchester United fans have lined up a new name to replace Louis van Gaal...

When it comes to discussing the potential replacements for Louis van Gaal at Manchester United, three names top the list: Jose Mourinho, Pep Guardiola and Ryan Giggs.

Given that Carlo Ancelotti has already signed a deal with Bayern Munich and Diego Simeone is apparently being lined up by Chelsea, there aren't many 'elite' managers left to choose from.

But that hasn't stopped some United fans taking an alternative view of who could follow the beleaguered Van Gaal in the Old Trafford hot seat.

It was only a few days ago that Alan Pardew was being put forward as a serious contender, and now Mark Hughes is receiving plenty of praise after leading Stoke to a 2-0 victory over his former club.
