A couple of big names have been linked to the Man Utd job with Antonio Conte the bookies favourite but the Italian recently took over at Tottenham after the sacking of Nuno Espirito Santo.

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers is another big name who has been strongly linked with the Man Utd job but the Daily Mail reports that Man Utd and sources close to Brendan Rodgers played down speculation that the Leicester City boss has already been approached to replace Solskjær.

The Daily Mail’s Chris Wheeler also reveled that the Glazers’ plan was to allow Solskjaer complete the season but the club hierachy are now having a rethink due to the recent performances especially in games against rivals Liverpool and Man City.

According to Wheeler, the Man Utd platers are beginning to question Solskjaer’s decision making and tactics, and Bruno Fernandes is one of the players who feels he needs more direction from the manager.

Players are also said to be unhappy with the treatment of players like Donny Van De Beek who has struggled for game time since joining United and Solskjaer’s decision to play Marcus Rashford on Saturday despite having symptoms of flu has made a section of players in the team think the manager is being partial and biased.

Many reports suggest that Solskjaer will be at the helm for the game against Watford after the international break but the more time the Glazers take to mske a decision, the lower the chances of Man Utd getting a better replacement.
