Solskjaer holds talks with Cristiano, Maguire and others to save Manchester United job

With pressure continuing to mount on Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the coach has spoken to a number of key players this week as he looks for solutions to the club's on-field problems.

The Norwegian's job has been in question for a while now, with humiliating losses against Liverpool and Manchester City not helping his cause.

As per the Daily Mail, Solskjaer has now spoken to Cristiano Ronaldo, Bruno Fernandes, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw, Victor Lindelof and Nemanja Matic in an attempt to find a solution. The coach called them for a meeting at 10am at the club's Carrington training facility on Thursday.

There have been reports that Cristiano Ronaldo has grown unhappy with the situation at Old Trafford since joining in the summer and that he would already be considering his future beyond the summer should they fail to qualify for the Champions League.

Solskjaer on the brink

Until now, though, United have stood by Solskjaer despite mounting pressure from around the club to part ways with the former player.

Manchester United take on Watford in the Premier League on Saturday before facing Villarreal in a crucial Champions League tie, and a defeat in either of those games could prove fatal yet.

Zinedine Zidane and Brendan Rodgers are just two of the names to have been linked with succeeding Solskjaer at Old Trafford.
