Nuno Espirito Santo is another name that could be seen as an alternative to Solskjaer if they were not to sign Pochettino. The current Wolverhampton Wanderers manager has been very successful in recent years after taking over in July 2017.
In his first season as manager, he finished top of the Championship on 99 points which was a 41 points increase from the previous season where they finished 15th in the league. Then, in the Premier League the following year, he took Wolves to seventh in the table earning them a Europa League spot.
As well as this, in the following season, he became the second manager to complete the double over Guardiola’s Manchester City. There is certainly no doubt about the quality of Santo’s management making him a potential target for United.
However, a move to Old Trafford seems unlikely especially with Wolves sat in sixth position, six points clear of Solksjaer’s side. As well as this, similar to Naglesmann, he is creating history at Molineux and is part of a project which he may not want to leave as of yet.
Although, it would be difficult to turn down an offer from one of the biggest clubs in world football. Currently, Nuno Espirito Santo is priced at odds of 20/1 to become the next manager of United.
