Solskjaer's positions continues to come into question after the club suffered a 4-2 loss to Leicester City over the weekend, leaving the side five points behind leaders Chelsea.

There have been calls for the club to relieve Solskjaer of his duties after the club's poor start to the season despite bringing in the likes of Ronaldo, Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho.

Spanish journalist Eduardo Inda has reported that the Red Devils made contact with former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane about potentially replacing Solskjaer.

The Spaniard added that it was Ronaldo who recommended Zidane to the United board, having worked with the French coach during his time in the Spanish capital.

“I already said that PSG had approached him, they have always wanted him," Inda told Spanish outlet El Chiringuito TV.

"Newcastle also wanted him, but in the national team break, he had a call from Manchester United to replace Solskjaer.

"The person who would sponsor him and who has recommended him to the board is Cristiano Ronaldo."

Zidane has been a free agent since leaving Los Blancos at the end of last season and he has reportedly already turned down an approach from big-money Newcastle United.
