The chief football correspondent for the Daily Telegraph, Jason Burt, reports that Ed Woodward and Richard Arnold have met with Solskjaer and told him the news.

To say there is a degree of scepticism surrounding the announcement is an understatement, with many fans believing the damage has already been done and that the former Manchester United player should leave now.
There are also increasing murmurs of discontent emerging from the Red Devils' dressing room, as James Ducker of the Daily Telegraph reported that Eric Bailly openly challenged his boss after the decision was made to "pick a centre-half who was not fit" in the 4-2 loss at Leicester City.

But the Norwegian still has the support of Sir Alex Ferguson, with the legendary Scot visited Solskjaer at Carrington today along with ex-chairman Martin Edwards.
There was growing speculation that Solskjaer would be sacked after Sunday's game, but he now has three massive upcoming matches to save his skin.
Arguably the toughest test of them all then comes on 6th November, when Manchester City visit Old Trafford. The last thing the United hierarchy will want to see is another chastening humiliation at the hands of an arch rival.
The club are now eight points adrift of current Premier League leaders Chelsea after only nine games played, and are already out of the Carabao Cup following a third-round exit at the hands of West Ham United.
Whatever happens, it will be a pivotal week and a half for Solskjaer at Old Trafford.
