Man Utd next manager odds: Simeone, Zidane & Allegri lined up with Solskjaer contract extension talks delayed

DIEGO SIMEONE, Zinedine Zidane and Massimiliano Allegri are the leading contenders to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as Manchester United manager.

The Norwegian has revitalised United's fortunes with the club second in the Premier League – five points behind leaders Manchester City.

But Old Trafford chiefs have chosen to see how Solskjaer fares during the remainder of the 2020-21 campaign before opening contract talks.

The 47-year-old has around 16 months remaining on his current deal.

And officials at the club are prepared to offer him a two-year deal with an increase in wages if things continue to progress.

But there are questions about inconsistency after the recent shock defeat to Sheffield United and 'concerns have been raised'.

As a result, Betfair have created a 'next manager' market if the club decide to sack Solskjaer with Allegri the 7/2 favourite.
