If United decides to fire Solskjaer, they are determined to do it in an orderly manner, owing to his importance at the club.
According to Sky Sports News, United would not fire him during an away game regardless of the outcome or performance.
Solskjaer, who has been managing since December 2018, signed a three-year contract extension in July, and his dismissal would cost United an estimated £7.5 million.
