Ex-Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in talks with Premier League club to become their new manager 

Former Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could return to the Premier League as Leicester City’s new manager.

According to the Sun, the 51-year-old has been in contact with the Foxes about taking the managerial role. 

Enzo Maresca led the Midlands outfit to promotion from the Championship last season but he has since taken charge at Chelsea.

Leicester are now trying to find a replacement for Maresca, and Solskjaer is in contention for the job. 

The Norwegian is keen to take on the challenge of keeping the Foxes in the Premier League next season. 

Club chairman Top Srivaddhanaprabha highly rates him, and he narrowly missed out on the job last summer when they appointed Maresca. 

Solskjaer took charge of Man United on a caretaker basis in December 2018 after Jose Mourinho’s dismissal. 

His immediate impact at Old Trafford convinced the hierarchy to give him a permanent contract. He guided United to a third-place finish in his first full season. 

The Red Devils finished runners-up to Manchester City the following season under Solskjaer, but he lost his job after a dismal start to the 2021-22 campaign.

The 51-year-old has since received several managerial offers, but he has been waiting for the right opportunity.
