He jetted off for a short holiday to his native Norway last week as the Premier League broke for the international window.

And he left England under extreme pressure following the Red Devils’ dire performance in their last outing – a 2-0 defeat by crosstown rivals Manchester City.

Solskjaer has been limping on at Old Trafford despite a string of shocking results.

The loss to City followed heavy defeats by Liverpool and Leicester and Champions League salvage jobs against Atalanta.

United chiefs are thought to be split over whether the club legend is the right man to take them forward.

Reports suggest possible replacements are once again being sounded out after previous favourite Antonio Conte took the Tottenham job instead.

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers has reportedly been house-hunting in Cheshire as United consider a homegrown option.

Or Zinedine Zidane could be given the chance to add Premier League success to his glittering CV – which would come as welcome news to Cristiano Ronaldo.

Lastly, French sources suggest Paris Saint-Germain’s Mauricio Pochettino could be preparing to swap the City of Love for England’s North West.

Solskjaer’s men next face strugglers Watford in a trip to Vicarage Road, when bosses will expect to see an improvement following the Norwegian’s time off.
