After eight games in England, United are sixth with 14 points. Five points now separate them from Chelsea, the Premier League leaders with 19.
Either Solskjaer's side get their act together or they will have no chance of challenging for the title. The Red Devils lost against Leicester and there is already speculation that the coach could be sacked. Conte, Zidane, Ten Hag and Graham Potter are all being touted as possible successors.
For the moment, United's top brass are backing Solskjaer. In fact, they are thinking about how to motivate the manager to motivate the team to look up and fight for the Premier League.
According to the 'Daily Star', United will give the manager 82 million euros to sign, but with an asterisk. He will only have such a figure at his disposal if he sees United with a chance of winning the title between now and December.
Solskjaer has just over a month and a half to get the team to fight for everything. If he fails to do so, there will be no reinforcements in the winter window and he will have to wait until the summer with what he has. An added pressure for the manager whose results, for the moment, are not convincing.
