Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo will leave the Premier League club after Sunday’s final game of the season, with Tottenham reportedly in the hunt to hire the Portuguese coach.
Nuno led Wolves to promotion from the Championship and established them in the top-flight during his four seasons at Molineux.
With Tottenham still looking for a new manager after Jose Mourinho’s sacking in April, Nuno was immediately installed as the bookmakers’ favourites to take charge of the north London side.
Brighton’s Graham Potter and Southampton’s Ralph Hasenhuttl have also been linked with the Tottenham job, which has been filled by Ryan Mason on a caretaker basis since Mourinho’s exit.
Under Nuno’s management, Wolves secured consecutive seventh-placed finishes in the Premier League and reached the Europa League quarter-finals.
This season has proved more difficult and Wolves can do no better than a 12th-placed finish depending on Sunday’s result in his farewell match against United at Molineux.
There had been reports for several weeks that Wolves were considering parting ways with the 47-year-old, who only signed a new deal with the club 12 months ago.
Both Nuno and the club insisted the decision to leave had been made by mutual consent
