Solskjaer's job is believed to under scrutiny following the poor start to the season, which their poor home form in the Premier League.

Former Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is reportedly one of the main replacements along with RB Leipzig's Julian Nagelsmann.

However, Doyle feels Wolves tactician should also be one of the possible candidates if Solskjaer leaves.

"I think I'd be a bit worried if I was a Wolves fan at the moment about Nuno," he told Ladbrokes.

“He's a contender for the Manchester United job, of course he is. Why wouldn't he be?

“Mauricio Pochettino is probably their number one choice but Nuno, definitely, would be up there as well for me.

“His link with [Jorge] Mendes and their ability to sign players, he would be a contender. I'm a Man United fan and I'd have no problem with him being the manager.

“He'd definitely be inspirational. You watch him on the side of the pitch and he's the total opposite to Solskjaer.

“I don't think he's going to go anywhere just yet, and I think Pochettino is probably the more suitable option - he's had more success and has more experience in the Premier League at a top club so he's rightly the favourite.

“Wolves fans are probably safe for now but there's no reason at all that I can see why he wouldn't be considered for the Man United job.”
