But the hunt is over with co-chairmen Joel and Avram Glazer now convinced they have the right man for the job in Solskjaer.
Avram Glazer travelled from America to be at United’s 3-0 victory over Fulham at Craven Cottage on Saturday.
He spoke with Solskjaer after the game in the dressing-room, having already talked to the interim chief’s agent Jim Solbakken, who had sat with the directors as a guest of United.
