Austrian international Moritz Bauer is in line to make his Stoke debut at Old Trafford as his new club's search for a successor to Mark Hughes continues.

Espanyol manager Quique Sanchez Flores was the favourite to take over at the bet365 stadium after the Potters had to abandon their hopes of luring Gary Rowett away from Derby when he signed a new contract with the Championship outfit.

It is understood a Stoke delegation met Sanchez Flores in Barcelona on Wednesday and it had been reported that the 52-year-old Spaniard was offered a five-year contract.

However, speaking at a pre-match press conference ahead of his side's LaLiga clash with Athletic Bilbao, Sanchez Flores said he was happy to stay at Espanyol, where he signed a three-year deal in 2016.

Stoke's attention has now reportedly turned to persuading Republic of Ireland manager Martin O'Neill and his assistant Roy Keane to take on the challenge of keeping the club in the Premier League.

But any appointment is unlikely to take place before Monday's clash with Manchester United, with Stoke currently in the relegation zone.

Bauer, 25, who joined from Rubin Kazan earlier this month, is relishing a possible debut against Jose Mourinho's side and told the club's website: "It's unbelievable - it would be a dream, like something from a movie.

"I have always wanted to challenge myself in the Premier League, just as every footballer in the world has. So to possibly step out in the league for Stoke City in a game against Manchester United is incredible - it is very exciting.

"Of course, nothing is certain and if I don't play I will still be there giving all of my support to the rest of the lads.

"I am really looking forward to my time here, and hopefully we can get positive results very quickly - possibly even on Monday night."
