How the Glazer family feel about Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Man Utd future

Manchester United chiefs have sounded out Mauricio Pochettino in recent days in light of the Red Devils' slow start to the season.

Daily Star Sport understands senior club figures have made contact with Pochettino's camp – and the Argentine is keen to make United his next job.

However, there is a simple way for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to keep hold of his job – get Champions League football.

That is according to Duncan Castles, who claims the Glazer family are content with the Norwegian due to how cheap he is.

And while Pochettino would be a strong candidate, he would cost significantly more than Solskjaer does at present.

"It is no secret that no Manchester United manager would survive a sequence of results like that if it is to carry on or a sequence of performances," Castles said on the Transfer Window podcast.

"They weren't unlucky in any of these games. Their luck was to get that penalty at Brighton.

"Solskjaer has been insulated because he is cheap, because he is popular with the support with his history as a player, because he does not cause conflict with the Glazers.

"He has been presented with the opportunity to criticise the Glazers for not buying in this transfer market and he's refused to take it.

"For the Glazers, that combination – and as long as he can get them Champions League football – is great.

"It takes the heat off them and it's cheap and allows them to control the transfer policy through Ed Woodward.

"They're happy to continue with this process for as long as they can get away with it."

United finished third last season, with Solskjaer highly praised for his efforts.

However, as Premier League rivals were strengthening, the Red Devils were static in the transfer market.

Donny van de Beek was brought in early in the summer.

But United were forced to panic-buy on deadline day, bringing in Edinson Cavani and Alex Telles.
