Top 9 World Football Managers Who Could Move This Summer

1 of 10

    This summer may see a lot of manager make moves if rumours and speculation come to pass.

    Fabio Capello's resignation from the England position will have an interesting effect on which managers go where in England.

    There are bosses who have been unemployed who may be called back into action, or others that have failed to live up to expectations and have to move elsewhere. Some may even feel they have outgrown their current situation.

    Here are the top nine managers who could be on the move this summer.

David Moyes

2 of 10

    David Moyes is due his chance at a big club. He may just get it this summer.

    As is the case with most others on this list, the possibility of his move is dependent on whether others move or not.

    Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has been strongly linked with the vacancy for the England National team and, if things go wrong at Chelsea, Andres Villas-Boas may not be in England after the season ends.

    Those are two options that Moyes would certainly be amongst the candidates for. If he is interested.

Harry Redknapp

3 of 10

    Harry Redknapp is strongly considered the leading candidate to become England's new manager.

    A lot of people in the football world think that he is the man for the job.

    Redknapp has done an impressive job at Tottenham and has the team challenging for the title this year.

    He recently said that he would certainly consider the job offer.

Rafa Benitez

    Rafa Benitez has been out of a job for some time now. This summer could provide him with a good opportunity to get back in the manager's seat somewhere.

    England is the most likely destination, but it probably will not be Liverpool, especially if Kenny Dalglish secures Champions League football.

    Tottenham and Chelsea are the most probable among the big clubs.

Louis Van Gaal

    Louis Van Gaal is another high-profile coach currently without a position.

    With a resume that includes stints at clubs like Ajax and Barcelona, Van Gaal would certainly be an option for big clubs that want a change.

Guus Hiddink

6 of 10

    Guus Hiddink's time with Turkey ended after they failed to qualify for Euro 2012.

    He is sure to be strongly linked with a move back to Chelsea if things do not improve considerably for Andre Villas-Boas.

    Roman Abramovich is apparently already considering such a move.

Fabio Capello

7 of 10

    The man who may cause the manager carousel in England.

    Fabio Capello has already been linked with a move to Russia, but you feel that Italy may be the more likely option for the Italian.

Roberto Martinez

8 of 10

    Roberto Martinez's Wigan is a leading candidate for relegation at the moment. If that happens, Martinez may end up leaving the club.

    He has the full support of Wigan owner Dave Whelan, though the same man also said he would sack Martinez if necessary.

    The Spanish manager turned down an offer from Aston Villa last year, but relegation may prompt a move.

Andre Villas-Boas

9 of 10

    Considering the aforementioned rumour of Guus Hiddink possibly joining the club, Andre Villas-Boas has his work cut out for him.

    The team's run in the Champions League and placement in the English Premier League will have huge effects on whether or not the Portuguese manager keeps his job.

    Inter Milan has been rumoured to be looking at attaining his services for next season.

Jose Mourinho

10 of 10

    Fabio Capello was let go from Real Madrid even though he won the league. Jose Mourinho may try to escape that by leaving on his own.

    The speculation is already there. Three years is the longest he has spent managing a club and that came between 2004 and 2007 at Chelsea.

    Mourinho has attacked the press over these claims, but considering his track record, a league win and possible Champions League trophy could tempt him to move on.
