A 4-2 defeat to Leicester City piled the pressure on the Norwegian, which was a fourth defeat in the club's previous seven games across all competitions.
This has led to many agents offering their services to find a replacement for the legendary former United striker, but the club insist that Solskjaer's job is safe.
A thrilling 3-2 comeback win over Atalanta in the Champions League eased the pressure somewhat, but it is being claimed that Bruno Fernandes and Cristiano Ronaldo had to intervene in Solskjaer's half-time team talk with the side 2-0 down at the break.
The Mirror also reports that Fernandes pleaded with Solskjaer to be deployed in a deeper role to get more time on the ball.
A source told The Sun: "The message is not clear. There is confusion in the team, players don't understand what the tactics are.
"There's no team, it's just individuals and there are big problems in the defence."
Solskjaer has been accused of many tactical errors of judgement, including the decision to start an out-of-sorts Harry Maguire in the aforementioned 4-2 loss at the King Power Stadium. The United boss admitted he made a mistake in quotes published after the game.
"When you look at the game after, the four goals we conceded were poor. The way we played we don't deserve to continue that (away unbeaten) run.
"I pick the team; Harry Maguire showed no reaction and I hold my hand up if that does not work out. If we concede four, I probably made a bad decision."
