Maradona ready to replace Solskjaer as Manchester United manager

Maradona ready to replace Solskjaer as Manchester United manager

However, only initial contact between the teams has so far been confirmed with United still yet to set in stone the future of their most commercially attractive asset.

Argentina legend Diego Maradona believes he can be the man to change the fortunes of Manchester United after they finished sixth in the Premier League in the 2018/19 season.

"As I always say, the best players in the team always get the plaudits when things are going well, and when they're not, they get the biggest criticism as well".

However, after overseeing just two wins in the final 12 matches of the 2018-19 campaign, questions were raised as to whether United were premature in appointing Solskjaer on a full-time basis.

Maradona went onto explain that United were his English team at one point, but switched allegiances to rivals Man City as a result of compatriot Sergio Aguero.

If that is the case then I have to say I would welcome it, it would mean we land a player that would cost us less than we would receive for Aubameyang, so that is extra money in the kitty and an ideal replacement for the Gabon worldwide.

If Maradona was to spectacularly replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer - who has a three-year contract - in the United dugout, he would surely want to mix up the squad.

Express Sport understands the Red Devils are eyeing young British players to bolster Solskjaer's squad at Old Trafford.

Maradona said that among United players, he likes Ander Herrera, who said earlier that he would be leaving the club at the end of the season and is widely connected with a move to Paris St Germain, while Paul Pogba doesn't work hard enough. "What noise, like La Bombonera".
