Manchester United have ended their interest in Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino as they plan to appoint Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as their new permanent manager, according to the Sun.

Pochettino was heavily linked with the United post in December when Jose Mourinho was sacked. Solskjaer was appointed as interim manager until the end of the season, but nobody expected him to make the impact he has.

The Norwegian has won 10 of his 11 matches in charge across all competition, including a 1-0 win against Spurs at Wembley in the Premier League.

And according to the Sun, that form has been enough to tempt the United board into hiring Solskjaer on a permanent basis – although it’s believed the club will not make an announcement until the end of the season.

That could suggest the Red Devils still haven’t completely made their mind up. But if Solskjaer continues the way he’s going – and especially if United finish in the top four – it would be a surprise if he failed to land the job.

The potential news will come as a huge boost for Tottenham, who reportedly no longer have to worry about Pochettino being lured to Old Trafford.
