Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under immense pressure to win trophies – and keep Cristiano Ronaldo happy – at Old Trafford. Solskjaer is yet to achieve the former and after Ronaldo stormed down the tunnel chuntering to himself following United’s 1-1 draw against Everton, he might be failing the latter as well.

Solskjaer’s plan to bench Ronaldo for the Everton game didn’t work out as Rafa Benitez’s side frustrated the Red Devils and snatched a point at Old Trafford. That was a week after Aston Villa won 1-0 there too, and days after Villarreal came close to throwing a spanner in their Champions League ambitions too.

Mauricio Pochettino

But sould United opt to get rid of Solskjaer, who could replace him at Old Trafford?

PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino is currently the favourite to replace the Norwegian. The ex-Tottenham manager has been linked with the Red Devils for years but a deal never came to fruition. Whether he’d be willing to swap PSG’s star XI including Lionel Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe for the likes of Fred and Phil Jones is another question…

7/2
Mauricio Pochettino Next Permanent Man Utd Manager

Leicester’s Brendan Rodgers and former Chelsea and Inter Milan boss Antonio Conte are next in line to take over from Solskjaer. Rodgers has done a brilliant job with the Foxes but could he take United to the next level? Conte, meanwhile, is a serial winner and has won the titles at Chelsea, Inter and Juventus and is currently out of work.

2/1
Brendan Rodgers Next Permanent Man Utd Manager
5/1
Antonio Conte Next Permanent Man Utd Manager

While those three would be serious and solid options for United, why not back Ronaldo just to take over himself?
