Manchester United hero Steve Bruce is apparently pushing for a move to Old Trafford after his agent contacted the Red Devils about taking over as the club’s interim manager. United are on the lookout for a new boss after sacking Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Sunday morning. 

Bruce is currently without a club after being sacked by Newcastle last month in the wake of their mega-money takeover.

The 60-year-old had been in charge at St James’ Park for just over two years but was given his marching orders after failing to win a game all season.

The Red Devils appointed Michael Carrick as their caretaker boss at the weekend but are looking for someone to take the helm until the end of the campaign.

United chiefs have apparently drawn-up a shortlist of five potential candidates to see them through until May.

Ralf Rangnick, Ernesto Valverde, Rudi Garcia and Lucien Favre are all thought to be in the running to land the top job, while the club are also considering sticking with Carrick.

The United hierarchy are not thought to be considering a move for Bruce at this stage and the former defender is currently ranked as an outsider to take charge at Old Trafford.
