The club have suggested they will install a director of football and United great Schmeichel is mulling over whether to put himself in the frame.
He said on the BBC Radio 5 live programme Sportsweek: “I’m actually thinking about putting my name in there.
“What’s really important is to get the Manchester United culture back and the identity back.
“I would love to see [THE JOB GO TO]someone who has played there, and can bring some of that Sir Alex [FERGUSON]mentality back in the whole of the football club.
“I’m considering: ‘Do I have the qualities?’ And if I come up to an answer to that question, then I will put my name in the hat.
“I’ll have a good think about this over Christmas and New Year and make a decision about it.”
Schmeichel won five Premier League titles, three FA Cups and the Champions League during his eight seasons at United. He also played for the club’s rivals Manchester City.
