Manchester United consider appointing Laurent Blanc as their new head coach on an interim basis, according to a report.

Manchester United are reportedly considering appointing Laurent Blanc as their new head coach on an interim basis.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is on the verge of being sacked by the Red Devils, with the club now seeking a replacement for the Norwegian.

Darren Fletcher is allegedly the favourite to lead the team on an interim basis while the search for a permanent manager is accelerated, with Zinedine Zidane thought to be in the driving seat.

However, according to Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, Blanc has also emerged as an option to lead Man United once Solskjaer's departure has been confirmed.

The 56-year-old, who represented the 20-time English champions as a player between 2001 and 2003, managed Bordeaux, France and Paris Saint-Germain between 2007 and 2016.

The former France international has been in charge of Qatai outfit Al-Rayyan since 2020, boasting a record of 14 wins, seven draws and 18 defeats from 39 matches at the helm.
