Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could leave his job as the Manchester United manager in the summer with recent reports claiming that the Red Devils hierarchy has been in contact with ex-Espanyol, Tottenham Hotspur and Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino.

According to controverial journalist IndyKaila, Manchester United officials have held preliminary discussions with Pochettino over the possibility of him replacing Solskjaer in the Old Trafford dugout.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has struggled to consistently produce results for Manchester United since he was made the permanent manager around a year ago.

The former Red Devils striker started his managerial era at Old Trafford as a temporary appointment on the back of the dismissal of Jose Mourinho as the Manchester United manager shortly after the 3-1 loss at the home of Liverpool in December 2018.

He won 14 matches, drew one and lost two of his 17 games as the temporary Manchester United boss and that record prompted the club bosses to make his temporary deal a permanent one in March 2019.

He has lost more Premier League games than the ones he won during his permanent reign as the Manchester United though he has been greatly disturbed by the injuries to key first team players.

Solskjaer still has a lot to fight for this season at Old Trafford and results between now and this summer will determine his long-term future at Old Trafford.

Here are top three managerial targets for the club if Solskjaer is sacked this summer:

Mauricio Pochettino

The ex-Spurs boss is a long-term managerial target for Manchester United.

He was the favourites for the job before Solskjaer was named manager.

Julian Nagelsmann

The RB Leipzig boss is widely regarded as one of the best young managers in the world.

He has made his German club to be a title conteder in the German Bundesliga.

Maximiliano Allegri

The Italian manager has a very strong CV needed for the Manchester United job having managed the likes of AC Milan and Juventus in Italy.
