Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in talks to coach Toronto FC, his agent says

Former Manchester United striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is in talks with Toronto FC to become the MLS club's manager, his agent said.

Jim Solbakken said "yes" but did not offer any further details when asked by Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet if he had been in touch with Toronto FC.

Multiple reports out of Canada denied the accuracy of the agent's statement, with some instead suggesting Solskjaer could take over a new role as club president.

Solskjaer, 42, last coached Cardiff but was sacked last September following the Welsh club's relegation to the Championship.

Toronto FC is currently coached by Greg Vanney and is in fifth place in the Eastern Conference.

With the highest payroll in MLS at over $22 million, the Canadian club is under massive pressure to make the playoffs for the first time in its eight-season MLS history.
