Manchester United remain supportive of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, according to the Times, but they are considering other options if the Norwegian still doesn’t deliver once new signings are secured.
The newspaper names four potential candidates who could replace Solskjaer if the Red Devils dispense with his services.
Mauricio Pochettino is the standout option, with the Argentinian available after being sacked by Tottenham in November. The 47-year-old’s ability to develop young players and play with an attacking brand of football will no doubt prove attractive to the United board.
England manager Gareth Southgate’s name is also in the frame after helping the national team to the semi-finals of the World Cup eighteen months ago.
Paris Saint-Germain head coach Thomas Tuchel is another manager being looked at with the German having won plaudits for his style of play during spells with Borussia Dortmund and PSG.
RB Leipzig’s young manager Julian Nagelsmann is also reportedly being considered. The 32-year-old has guided his team to the top of the Bundesliga table at the midway stage this season.
