Man United are ‘hoping’ to name an interim manager before their match against Chelsea, with three candidates emerging.

After sacking Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Sunday, Manchester United are on the lookout for a new manager.

Manchester United are reportedly hoping to have an interim manager in place by Sunday’s match against Chelsea, and have narrowed their search to three candidates.

After sacking Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Sunday morning, the Red Devils are looking for a new manager to take over until the end of the season.

United has had a poor run of form in recent months, dropping to eighth place in the Premier League table after winning just one of their last seven games.

The 13-time Premier League champions were thrashed 4-1 by Watford at the weekend, prompting Solskjaer’s dismissal.

Michael Carrick, a former midfielder, has been appointed as the team’s interim manager, and he presided over his first match on Tuesday night.

Carrick inspired United to a 2-0 win over Villarreal in Spain, ensuring their place in the Champions League knockout stages.

Carrick is now being considered for the job until May, according to Stretty News, with Lucien Favre and Rudi Garcia also being considered.

Carrick previously worked as Solskjaer’s assistant and is familiar with the Old Trafford processes, having joined the club as a player in 2006.

Before hanging up his boots in 2018, the former England international played 464 times for the Red Devils.

Carrick is in a good position to carry on the legacy of Solskjaer, but Paul Scholes believes the 40-year-old should have left the club after the Norwegian was fired.

Meanwhile, Favre is unemployed after Borussia Dortmund fired him a year ago.

The 64-year-old, who previously won the Swiss title twice with FC Zurich in the mid-noughties, guided the German giants to a second-place finish in the Bundesliga in his only full season in charge.

Old Trafford officials have already spoken with Favre and former Lyon manager Garcia.

Garcia’s contract with the French team expired at the end of last season, and he left.

The 57-year-old defied the odds to lead the team to the 2019-20 Champions League semi-finals during his time at the Groupama Stadium.

Bayern Munich eventually defeated Lyon and went on to win the tournament after defeating Paris.
