According to reports, Manchester United has drawn up a three-man shortlist of managers likely to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Norwegian has the awful record of securing the club’s lowest points tally of (34points) at this stage of the season since 1990.

A disappointing 2-0 defeat at home to Burnley on Wednesday night has forced the club’s hands as we now find ourselves six points adrift of fourth-placed Chelsea and a staggering 33 points below Premier League leaders Liverpool, who also have a game in hand.

Report from Daily Star claim that the likes former Spurs Boss Mauricio Pochettino, Gareth Southgate and Julian Nagelsmann are in the United job shortlist.

Argentine Pochettino has long been linked with a move to Old Trafford and is currently out of work following his dismissal from Spurs at the end of last year.

A move for England Boss Gareth Southgate will have to wait until at least the summer because the 49-year-old is set to lead England into the 2020 Euros.

Nagelsmann, meanwhile, is rated as one of the most promising coaches in Europe, with the 32-year-old impressing at German club RB Leipzig.

It remains to be seen who the club will appoint if a decision to replace Solskjaer is finalized.
