The Blades look set to go back down to the Championship next season, but they'll be hopeful of replicating Norwich City's immediate bounce back up to the top tier, if they're able to hang on to some key players and hit the ground running when the 2021/22 campaign gets underway in August.

A wide variety of managerial candidates have been linked with the job over the past few weeks, including the like of ex-Celtic boss Neil Lennon, former Bournemouth coach Eddie Howe, and current interim manager Paul Heckingbottom, whose last full-time management gig was with Hibernian.
