Solskjaer, the current coach of Norwegian club Molde, was pictured on Sky Sports News arriving at Arsenal's Emirates Stadium in north London in the company of Cardiff owner Vincent Tan.

Cardiff, promoted from the Championship last season, have been without a manager since Malky Mackay was sacked on December 27 after his relationship with Tan broke down.

Solskjaer, 40, spent 11 years at United after signing from Molde in 1996, notably scoring a famous injury-time winner against Bayern Munich in the 1999 Champions League final in Barcelona.

He joined United's coaching staff after retiring in 2007 and was appointed manager of Molde in 2010, leading the club to glory in the Norwegian top flight in 2011 and 2012 and the Norwegian Cup in 2013.
