Manchester United seem to have been rescued from their slump by new manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who has made an instant impact at the Theatre of Dreams.

The Norwegian has reunited the team and got the players playing an attacking brand of football, with the side having picked up 3 wins in 3 games already.

Despite his impressive work so far, Solskjaer is still expected to vacate the hot-seat at the end of the season, as the club continues its search for a permanent managerial candidate.

And if the latest report from The Sun is to be believed, Ed Woodward seems to have already drawn up a 5-man shortlist for the coveted position.

As many would have guessed, Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino tops this list, as he remains Manchester United‘s primary candidate for the job.

The Argentinian is also believed to be interested in making the switch to Manchester, but the Red Devils have readied alternatives nonetheless, in case they fail to land the 46-year-old.

The other names on the list are those of Zinedine Zidane, Laurent Blanc, Marco Rose, and lastly Solskjaer, who will remain under consideration.

While the former two have been long-term links, the shock inclusion of Rose is down to his achievements with Austrian outfit Red Bull Salzburg, who he led to a league title win as well as the Europa League semi-finals in his debut campaign.
