He was then interviewed for the position as head coach of Tottenham over the summer, only for those talks to break down.

It is now being said that he would be open to taking the managerial role at Manchester United if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was to be sacked.

However, it is not thought he would be interested in replacing Mikel Arteta at Arsenal.

Sky Sports reporter Gianluca Di Marzio said: “He would only accept a winning project. So I don’t think he would accept Arsenal and that is why he said no to Tottenham.

“I think he would only accept if say Manchester United called.”

Solskjaer came under fire following United’s shock 2-1 defeat to Young Boys in their opening Champions League game on Tuesday night.

The Norwegian coach has now lost seven of his 11 Champions League games as manager of the Red Devils.

He is yet to win a trophy at Old Trafford since taking over from Jose Mourinho in December 2018.

And Ladbrokes slashed the odds of him being sacked before the end of the season to 2/1 following the European defeat.

Among those also being tipped to take over from Solskjaer are current Paris Saint-Germain manager Mauricio Pochettino and Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers.

Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann is also said to be in the frame, along with Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl.

But with United top of the Premier League table, Solskjaer’s exit is not expected imminently.
