A report has revealed how much it will cost Manchester United if they want to sack Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after their terrible start to the season.
Matty Longstaff’s goal on his Premier League debut for Newcastle saw the Red Devils beaten 1-0 at St James’ Park on Sunday.
Ed Woodward gave his backing to Solskjaer only a couple of weeks ago but there have been reports on Tuesday that United’s executive vice-chairman is now losing patience.
A report in the Daily Mirror claimed that he could be sacked if United lose their next match against Liverpool on October 20.
And now the Metro says that it will cost ‘around £7million should they decide to sack’ the former Cardiff City and Molde boss.
Jose Mourinho apparently received a pay-off totalling £19.6m and the report says that Solskjaer’s pay-off would be ‘the lowest in United’s modern history’.
The Norwegian would receive a ‘one-year severance pay’ if they were to fire him with previous sackings proving much costlier for the club.
