Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has given a clear indication that he will be appointed Manchester United's long-term boss.
Solskjaer has overseen a huge turnaround at Old Trafford since replacing Jose Mourinho last December, leading the team back into top-four contention in the Premier League, in addition to securing a spot in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
United have lost their last two matches to Arsenal and Wolverhampton Wanderers, though, and there have been suggestions that the club could still pursue Tottenham Hotspur's Mauricio Pochettino.
Solskjaer, however, has now firmly hinted that he will land the position on a full-time basis.
"As a manager when I know the contract is finished in the summer, I haven't spent as much time at the academy as I had come to do," Solskjaer told Verdens Gang. "But it is clear that I am now working as if I [will stay]. I think of the club five and 10 years ahead of time now as well.
"I have always thought that I'm going to have to do the best job interview I can. It's not up to me to consider if I live up to the standard, but I feel much more at home in this building here, at Old Trafford, with these players, than I've ever done."
United will look to return to winning ways when they welcome Watford to Old Trafford in the Premier League at the end of this month.
