What a difference a month can make in football. Only about a month ago, Manchester United looked bereft of ideas under Jose Mourinho and almost out of the race for the top four.
However, caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made an immediate impact.
On the back of six consecutive league wins, United find themselves only three points outside the top four.
Undoubtedly, Solskjaer has made a strong claim to take a permanent job in the summer. However, there are other candidates in the running for the role too.
Here’s a look at top five candidates to become the next permanent Manchester United manager…
Zidane achieved unprecedented success in his relatively short managerial stint with Real Madrid. The former World Cup winner is currently on a break, and he has been strongly linked with the United job. Zinedine Zidane has no experience of English football whatsoever, but he would definitely be an exciting arrival at Old Trafford.
The current Tottenham manager is another name being strongly linked with the United job. The Argentine would be a safer option for United as he has already proved his credentials in Premier League. However, it’s very unlikely that Spurs would allow him to leave for a direct opponent.

As we have already stated, the Norwegian manager has made a strong claim for the job. He is loved by the fans and United players seem to respond to him. He might not have managerial experience at a big club. However, it would be hard to turn him down if his team continue in the same vein for the rest of the season.
The England boss is the latest entrant in the race. According to the latest reports, the United board is keen for the national manager. However, it is hard to see him leave his England job, especially after Three Lions’ performances at World Cup 2018.
The Juventus manager is a long shot, but we can see Manchester United make a move for him if they fail with the above options. Allegri has proved his credentials with Juventus, and he is one of the top managers in football right now.
