Quique Sanchez Flores Will take charge of Watford for final time

Flores has jumped ahead of Republic of Ireland boss Martin O'Neill in the race to succeed Hughes.

On Friday morning, Sandoz reiterated that stance, tweeting: "I understand Quique Sanchez Flores is expected to take the job at Stoke City".

The Catalan newspaper state Stoke City, or Flores directly, would have to pay Espanyol a €4m termination clause if the manager is to leave his position right now.

Quique Sanchez Flores brushed aside questions about his future following Espanyol's Copa del Rey tie on Thursday night after emerging as the favourite to become the next Stoke manager.

At the moment, caretakers Eddie Niedzwiecki and Kevin Russell are set to take the team against United after Mark Hughes was sacked last weekend.

Flores said: "I'm not going to talk about me on such an important day for Espanyol".


But there is even a suggestion in Spain that he could still be with Espanyol's for Sunday's game against Athletic Bilbao.

It is claimed the two clubs are still "hammering out a deal", however, with Espanyol demanding £3.5 million to part with the 52-year-old. who led them to eighth in La Liga last season.

Flores' one season in English football to date saw him guide Watford to a 13th-placed finish in 2015-16, with the Hornets also reaching the FA Cup semi-finals.

Russell said: "It's been a bit hard with a manager gone who is really well-respected in the club".

"A new manager could come in tomorrow, and it's just a matter of us trying to make sure the lads are prepared, organised and ready to go".

"Whoever comes in is coming into a fantastic football club".
