Mirror UK now reports Ed Woodward will not hesitate axing Solskjaer as manager should the Norwegian fail to turn the club's form.

The publication added Ed Woodward understands the drastic move would receive backlash from a number of fans, but the Man United executive is ready to put sentiment aside "for the future of the club."

Whereas it is the club's top brass that has come under immense pressure for failing to deliver Solskjaer's priority targets, it is the tactician who could face the heat in the coming weeks.

Pochettino has for months been linked with the United hot seat but is yet to land the lucrative job.

He was first thought to be in line to replace then manager Jose Mourinho before the Manchester club settled for Solskjaer.

The Argentine is currently out of job, nearly a year after he was axed from Tottenham, with Mourinho taking over at the London club.

He was most recently tipped to take over at Barcelona but Ronald Koeman beat him to the role.

Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Bruno Fernandes had a bust-up with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at half time of Man United's 6-1 defeat to Tottenham last week.

According to staff member on that matchday, Fernandes could be heard repeatedly shouting: "We are supposed to be Manchester United. This shouldn’t be happening."

It was gathered that the Portuguese allowed his temperament get the better part of him and that was perhaps why he was hauled off at half-time of the game and was replaced by Fred.
