According to the Daily Mail, Manchester United have added England boss Gareth Southgate to their managerial shortlist as their search for a permanent coach continues.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was named interim manager after Jose Mourinho was sacked, and the Norwegian boss has a perfect record so far at the club, and many have tipped him to take the job on a permanent basis.

Mauricio Pochettino and Zinedine Zidane were the two hot favorites to take charge at Old Trafford next season.

However, United fear that Pochettino is unlikely to leave Tottenham Hotspur in the nearest future.

The Daily Mail reports on Sunday that the Red Devils have added England coach Gareth Southgate to the shortlist, including current interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and former Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane.

Southgate put pen to paper on a deal to stay on as England manager until the end of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, and luring him to Old Trafford might prove problematic.
