Man Utd news LIVE: Solskjaer sack latest, Sancho transfer instruction, Glazers’ plan | Football | Sport
Surprise candidate to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
It’s certainly not out of the question. Since getting the job full time in March, on the back of a successful stint as interim boss, Solskjaer has overseen a disastrous run. Now, the club look further away from challenging for major honours than ever before.
Amid their struggles, links to managers have started to emerge. Massimiliano Allegri is available and seemingly the obvious choice to take over.
But, intriguingly, Julian Nagelsmann was tipped to take over during the week.
He had previously worked wonders at Hoffenheim, guiding them to a Champions League qualifying spot two years in a row.
Jadon Sancho told to snub Man Utd
“[From Dortmund] to Manchester United? No, he’d be talking a step down,” he said on ESPN FC.
“Let’s be blunt about it, this is a team in the bottom half of the table.
“This is Manchester United, and they’ve still got the gloss and the glamour that sticks to the name, just about.
“I know Manchester United would be interested, but the queue would be halfway around Europe for this youngster.”
The Glazers have Old Trafford plan
The Glazers have come in for criticism regarding their spending on stadium maintenance and upgrades – leaving Old Trafford aged and lagging behind their rivals’ new modern facilities.
The belief has been that the owners has been shocked by spending on transfer fees and player wages in recent years and have scaled back plans to spend on the stadium.
However, Express Sport can reveal the Glazers do intend to pump money into Old Trafford – and have overseen a £20million investment already.
Part of that was down to VAR, with United introducing a production room for the system.
United have an ongoing multi-million pound refurbishment plan. Last summer that squared to £2m and, this summer, to £3.9m.
