Frankly, there are far too many people being linked with the vacant Manchester United job at the moment. Even people with tenuous links to the club are being touted.
One man who perhaps surprisingly is being linked with the position is former United striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, with the club saying in a statement that they plan to appoint a caretaker manager until the end of the season.
The 45-year-old is currently in charge of Norwegian side Molde FK, and the club have refused to speculate on whether their coach could leave to return to the side where he won six Premier League titles and one Champions League.

Solskjaer has won two Norwegian league titles with Molde, though failed to save Cardiff City from relegation in 2014, coming on board following the dismissal of Malky Mackay. His CV will not do much to impress an already frustrated Manchester United support, though the club seem hellbent on getting someone to fill Mourinho's void as soon as possible, and as a result seem content to hire someone with less experience with a view to hiring a more senior figure in the summer.
A report in The Times states that Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino wants to be considered for the job at the end of the season, writing that the Argentine believes that it is too good an opportunity to turn down.
Should the United hierarchy move for the former Espanyol boss, it is set to cost them £34 million, with Pochettino still having four years left on his contract with the London club.
