Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has not held talks with Manchester United about his future at the club.
The Norwegian has made a perfect start to managerial life at Old Trafford, winning his first four league games to become the first United boss to achieve that feat since Sir Matt Busby.
Solskjaer initially took the reins only until the end of the season, with United chiefs set to appoint their next full-time boss in the summer.
But some are calling for Solskjaer to keep the job if he continues to get results, and the man himself even admitted after Wednesday’s 2-0 win over Newcastle that he didn’t want to leave.
This successful start, and the drastic improvement on and off the pitch, has led to increased speculation that he will be given the job full time.
Solskjaer still has a contract with Norwegian club Molde until 2021 but have reportedly already agreed a fee of £7.2million if he becomes their permanent manager.
Ahead of United’s third round FA Cup clash with Reading, he said: “It’s early doors. Of course when I came in they were open and honest about they’re going to have a process looking for the next manager. But the more you’re here, the more you enjoy it.
“I’ve said one game at a time and the day they announce the next manager, if it’s me or someone else, good luck.”

Solskjaer’s fifth game is an FA Cup third-round clash with Championship strugglers Reading, where he will use the opportunity to rotate his squad.
Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku will start but in-form Paul Pogba, who may well have been rested anyway, is unlikely to be available because he is still feeling the effects of Jonjo Shelvey’s controversial challenge in the victory over Newcastle on Wednesday.
Solskjaer won the cup as a player and is targeting silverware as a manager, saying: “We’re about winning trophies of course.
“The FA Cup final is such a fantastic final. I played in the 1999 one at Wembley and, after having watched so many finals as a kid, to be able to make that long walk up from the dressing room to the pitch was fantastic. That’s what we hope for.”
