Ole Gunnar Solskjaer In Talks To Become Manchester United Manager

So it turns out Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could even be a super sub manager.

The former Manchester United striker is reportedly in talks with the club about taking over as temporary manager until the end of the season.

Solskjaer, who is currently in charge of Molde in Norway, has been heavily linked with the job alongside another former player Laurent Blanc, who is also in contention for the interim position.

It is believed that the club want an experienced head to takeover until the end of the campaign, according to The Mirror.

The news comes after United decided to sack Jose Mourinho on Tuesday morning.

It seems Sunday's defeat to Liverpool was the final straw as the club released the following statement to declare his departure.

"Manchester United announces that manager Jose Mourinho has left the club with immediate effect. The club would like to thank Jose for his work during his time at Manchester United and to wish him success in the future.

"A new caretaker manager will be appointed until the end of the current season, while the club conducts a thorough recruitment process for a new, full-time manager."

It's the question on so many lips right now. Who will replace Jose Mourinho as the next permanent manager of Manchester United?

Former Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane, who is currently without a job, is favourite with many bookmakers to take over the reigns at Old Trafford, while Guus Hiddink and Antonio Conte are second and third favourites, according to Oddschecker.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is way behind the pecking order at 20/1 with some bookies, which may surprise some.

Former Manchester United centre-back Blanc is among the favourites at 9/1, as well another former player Michael Carrick, who is 11/10 with some bookies.

Who would you like to see in charge of Manchester United next season?
