This seems to be the most unlikely option but football can always produce surprises. With Quique Sanchez Flores soon to be leaving, Watford are after a manager to take the club to the next level and that is what Frank De Boer could do. Currently in 13th place in the Premier League and making the FA cup semi final would be regarded as a successful season by many considering the squad and transfer budget Watford have. This is the definitely unlikely and with Walter Mazzarri poised to take over it would be a surprise to see the ex Ajax manager take over at Watford which would be seen as a step down in quality but you never know in football.


This is a bit more believable due to Valencia needing stability and a manager with the ability to get them back in the top four of La Liga after a season to forget for them. Their gamble on Gary Neville did not work out but with Frank De Boer, they will get a young, hungry manager who likes to play attractive football whilst putting his faith in young players. With Valencia having a very good squad, a good mix between experience and youth and a reasonable transfer budget, if given time De Boer could do a very could job for Valencia. Whilst rumours of Valencia being interested in him, it seems like they are chasing Manuel Pellegrini as the Manchester City manager will be without a club this summer. This is definitely a possible option for Frank De Boer but i believe he only has one job he has his heart on.


The Merseyside club are favourites to get Frank De Boers signature and it has all the potential to be a perfect fit. Everton have had a season to forget but currently have the best squad they have had in a number of years. With Romelu Lukaku, John Stones and Ross Barkley being key players and all 23 and under, De Boer will have plenty of time to help develop them and take the club to a new level that the fans believe they should be on. They will also have a large transfer budget for the coming seasons due to their takeover by Iranian billionaires, this should give De Boer the chance to bring in players he would like and give him the best chance of bringing success to Everton. I believe this will happen this summer and expect Everton to be fighting for Europe next season and if given the time and money, Frank De Boer could finally prove himself as a top manager in the Premier League.
