The new full-time boss of Manchester United?
Manchester United are considering naming Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as their new permanent manager before the end of the season.
Solskjaer has been a revelation since joining after Jose Mourinho’s sacking.
Mourinho was sacked after the Liverpool loss and the club have not looked back since.
That is because Solskjaer has won 12, drawn two and lost one since taking over at Old Trafford.
Not only are the results improving, so are the performances.
Man United are starting to play the same kind of football they were under legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson with a plethora of attacking players impressing.
Paul Pogba is the biggest example, with the Frenchman finally looking like the player Man United thought they were getting when they brought him back to the club in 2016.
Now, Solskjaer has impressed so much he is supposedly winning the race to be the next Manchester United boss.
Solskjaer getting closer to that permanent job
That is because according to the Mirror, Man United have shelved plans to look for a new boss and are even considering appointing Solskjaer as their permanent boss before the end of the current campaign.
The Mirror’s report claims ‘United wanted an experienced coach to succeed Jose Mourinho’ but ‘have not acted on those plans because they have been so impressed with Solskjaer.’
Furthermore, ‘the club’s hierarchy are even considering naming Solskjaer as their full-time boss before the end of the campaign to remove any uncertainty about their future.’
If so, we could see Solskjaer appointed as United’s permanent boss very soon.
Solskjaer could also start planning for the summer transfer window if he was appointed soon, which would not be possible if a decision came later down the line.
Another big figure Man United don’t want to leave is David De Gea.
The goalkeeper has been linked with a move away for some time now.
Now, there are new fears that De Gea could leave the club.
