The Football Association will use every legal means at their disposal to convince Gareth Southgate to remain in his position as England manager.
Six years have passed since the 52-year-old took over as Three Lions manager.
Southgate did admit that he would take some time to consider his options in the wake of England's World Cup elimination at the hands of France.
At the FA, his remarks have sparked worries that he's getting ready to leave.
The FA's technical director, John McDermott, is expected to play a key role in those discussions, which will be crucial to Southgate’s future.
Both men have a close relationship, and McDermott is eager to secure Southgate’s future until at least Euro 2024.
But there is a feeling that Southgate is seriously considering calling it quits.
Mauricio Pochettino and Thomas Tuchel would also be keen on the job, but it is unclear whether the FA would even consider another overseas coach.
