Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is reportedly expected to be announced as Manchester United's new permanent manager before the end of the week.

Manchester United are on the verge of making Ole Gunnar Solskjaer their new permanent manager, according to a report.

A number of the Red Devils' first-team stars have called on club chiefs to appoint the Norwegian on a full-time basis following his successful trial as caretaker boss.

Solskjaer was brought in as a stopgap following December's sacking of Jose Mourinho, but his positive return - 14 wins from 19 matches - has made him favourite to land one of the most sought-after jobs in world football.

The Daily Mail claims that it may be just a matter of days before the iconic striker is confirmed as United's new manager, giving them time to focus on the summer transfer window.

United lost 2-0 to Arsenal and 2-1 to Wolverhampton Wanderers ahead of the international break, in the Premier League and FA Cup respectively, but executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward still feels Solskjaer is the right man to take the club forward.

Next up for the Premier League giants is a home meeting with Watford on Saturday.
