Solskjaer's side suffered yet another embarrassing defeat in the league, losing 4-1 to Watford on Saturday.

The defeat at Vicarage Road leaves The Red Devils languishing in seventh place, a massive 12 points adrift of league leaders Chelsea.

The Norwegian is facing more scrutiny having already lost to Liverpool, a 5-0 home defeat, and Manchester City in the past few weeks.

What's more, widespread reports suggest the 48-year-old is set to be sacked amid the club's abysmal form.

But dismissing him will come at a hefty price, with The Sun claiming the club will have to pay Solskjaer £7.5 million to sack him now.

He would have to be given a full year's salary as a severance package by the Old Trafford club.

It would put him fifth in the highest-paid Premier League managers.

It's thought that Solskjaer has managed his final game as Man United manager, with his sacking reportedly imminent.

Speaking after his side's defeat at Watford, he told Sky Sports: "Sorry for smiling there, but that's human beings.

"I've got to say you're surprised, because all these lads are good lads, top players, top professionals.

"Of course, when it's not going for you it's going against you, and it's hard to play with that mental break. In the second half we came out with nothing to lose, played fantastically, scored loads of... well scored a good goal, created chances. But of course it wasn't enough.

"I've worked here for 18 years, and if the board is thinking of doing something, that's a conversation for between me and them. The results are not good enough. Something's wrong.

"We're embarrassed. I feel for the fans and I feel the same as the fans. Sometimes you've got to say sorry and I said sorry for the performance.

"I work as hard as I can, and that (his future) is not for me to worry about. I'm not going to discuss that here and now.

"I'm feeling very low, put it that way."
