Manchester United would be 'forced to pay Ole Gunnar Solskjaer £7.5m' if they sack him... but the under pressure manager survives for now after Liverpool thrashing and will take charge for his side's visit to Tottenham

Manchester United have lost five of their last nine under Ole Gunnar SolskjaerBut the United manager will avoid the sack for now ahead of trip to TottenhamUnited chiefs met on Monday to discuss the future of under pressure bossMeeting came about following horror show in 5-0 defeat by Liverpool 

Manchester United would reportedly have to pay Ole Gunnar Solskjaer £7.5m if they choose to sack him, although the under pressure manager will be given more time to turn around the club’s form.

United have lost five of their last nine games in all competitions and pressure piled on Solskjaer on Sunday after his side suffered one of their most humiliating results following a 5-0 hammering at home to bitter rivals Liverpool. 

During that run they have also won just three games with all the winning goals coming within the final 10 minutes.

According to The Sun, dismissing Solskjaer from his role would result in the Norwegian being given a full year’s salary as a severance package by the club, worth around £7.5m.

The reports adds it puts him around fifth in the highest paid Premier League managers and that only Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp, Brendan Rodgers and Marcelo Bielsa earn greater pay.

But Solskjaer’s job is not thought to be in jeopardy, despite the fears over his long term future.

He has taken charge of training this week at Carrington as they prepare for a crunch trip on Saturday to Tottenham Hotspur.

The Norwegian took charge in December 2018, but despite making slight progress has still yet to win a trophy at Old Trafford and it has left some members of his squad doubting his ability to take the club further.

Sportsmail understands that United — who gave Solskjaer a new three-year contract over the summer — were planning to review the 48-year-old’s position in December.

The galling surrender at Old Trafford last weekend has, however, accelerated that process. Board-level talks between co-chairman Joel Glazer, Ed Woodward and managing director Richard Arnold took place on Monday.

Sir Alex Ferguson and former chairman Martin Edwards visited Carrington on Tuesday afternoon, with United insisting the pair were attending a pre-planned commitment.

Ferguson has been a champion of his former striker and there has always been reticence to change at the top when United have fallen on troubling spells of form in previous campaigns.

Yet Solskjaer now faces three huge games — Tottenham, a Champions League clash at Atalanta and then the derby against Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City — that look likely to determine his prospects.

Glazer, based in Florida, has been watching developments with interest but senior United sources were adamant last night that no approaches for potential successors had been made after Antonio Conte, the former Chelsea boss, expressed an interest in a move.
