United are currently eighth in the Premier League after losing the Manchester derby 3-1 to crosstown rivals Manchester City on Sunday.

As a consequence, United dropped 12 points behind Pep Guardiola's side, and the 2018/19 league title is now seemingly out of their reach.

Even a place in the top four and subsequent qualification for next season's UEFA Champions League appear a tough task with United currently seven points off the pace.

According to The Sun, Mourinho will be sacked if he fails to qualify for the 2019/20 edition of the Champions League, with United's bosses having left him in no doubt that UCL football next season is critical to his future at Old Trafford.
