Man Utd to turn to Bundesliga boss amid Solskjaer doubts

first_img The German has steadied the ship since his arrival, with Bayern losing only twice in 15 Bundesiga games since their loss to Frankfurt.

Therefore, Bild continues by saying that United could swoop in amid the uncertainty over Flick’s future and secure his services if they decide to wield the axe on Solskjaer. In other news, Solskjaer is reportedly planning on selling five first-team stars as he prepares for a summer spending spree.
