Report: Man Utd 'In Talks' With Solskjaer Replacement

With Manchester United struggling to move up the table under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the English giants have reportedly opened talks with a big-name replacement for the tactician.

Click through the mini-gallery above to see some coaches who have been linked with the United job.

United have won only three of their past seven Premier League games, once again casting their top four credentials in doubt.

However, with one of the highest wage bills in football, the Red Devils regularly need to qualify for UEFA Champions League in order to avoid huge shortfalls in their budget.

Should United fail to make the top four by the end of the 2019/20 campaign, many believe Solskjaer's time at Old Trafford will be up.

As a consequence, the club's bosses have already "opened talks" with former Tottenham Hotspur coach Mauricio Pochettino to take over next season, according to Italian journalist Alfredo Pedulla.

The Argentine is currently without a job but has reportedly demanded full control over transfers should he take over the reins at Old Trafford.

United have also considered former Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri, who is also available right now, but they prefer Pochettino as their first-choice option, according to Pedulla.
