Manchester United have identified a shortlist of four managers that could replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer following the club’s shocking 5-0 defeat to Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday.
The Sun report that the Premier League club have instructed a leading agent to approach Antonio Conte, Zinedine Zidane, Brendan Rodgers and Erik ten Hag in case Solskjaer is sacked.
The agent has been asked to find out what plans each candidate would have for Manchester United and their contract demands.
Surely Solskjaer is on his last legs at Old Trafford. The United boss is underachieving with the current squad and it’s a waste of time leaving him in charge for much longer.
The club are lacking any kind of playing style and Solskjaer seems well out of his depth. Conte and Zidane are probably the leading candidates because they are big names, proven winners and – quite importantly – both currently unemployed.
Rodgers would be difficult to prise away from Leicester City, while Ten Hag would definitely be an interesting choice.
