Manchester United could appoint Gareth Southgate as their next manager if the Red Devils decide to part company with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, according to a report in England.

The Sun is reporting that the England manager could emerge as the leading contender to become the next Red Devils boss if they decide to part company with Solskjaer at the end of the season.

The same article states that former Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino is also waiting in the wings should the 20-time English champions decide to swing the axe at Old Trafford.

According to the same story, Solskjaer is aware that he is under pressure to turn around results at Manchester United following a difficult run of results in the Premier League.

The Sun go on to add that Pochettino would rather take over the reins at Manchester United rather than Arsenal, although the Argentinian head coach would have to pay Spurs £12.5m if he takes another Premier League job this term.

Manchester United were 2-1 winners against Pochettino’s former employers Spurs on Wednesday night courtesy of Marcus Rashford’s double at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils are in sixth position in the Premier League table and eight points adrift of Chelsea FC, who occupy the final Champions League qualification spot.
