Ex-Spurs manager is currently in Manchester as his PSG side face off Manchester city at the Etihad Wednesday night.

He would be willing to take on the role at Old Trafford, but according to the star of the day, he will have to wait.

After being pushed back by PSG, United are expected to pursue the appointment of an interim boss, with former Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde the favorite.

In a statement released by Red Devils bosses announcing Solskjaer’s departure, it was confirmed that they would hire an interim manager to take them over the summer.

Michael Carrick was named goalkeeper and got off to a perfect start with a win over Villarreal in the Champions League Tuesday night.

The United Chiefs remain optimistic that Carrick could help ease some of the pressure on their shoulders, giving them time to secure the next date.

A number of names have been linked to the post for the remainder of the campaign, including the former Barcelona boss Valverde.

It is understood that Valverde, who left Camp Nou in 2020, would like to work and has had initial talks with the club.

Former Lyon head coach Rudi Garcia and former RB Leipzig boss Ralf Rangnick have also been nominated with United hoping to make a decision by mid-December.

That would mean the new man is in charge of the festive fixture schedule where United’s ambitions for the rest of the season will be shaped.

After 12 games of the season, they are already 12 points behind the league leaders Chelsea now fully focusing on securing a top-four spot and securing Champions League football.

Once the season is over, all attention will then turn to the landing of an elite manager, where Pochettino and Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers will take the stage.

For now, Carrick will remain in charge and hope to build on his positive start when they face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Carrick retains the support of the board and has previously said he is happy to stay in place for as long as the club demands.

The Daily Star also confirm that once his stay in the canoe is over, he will return to the coaching staff to work alongside the new interim manager.
