There’s been several reports in the media about United keeping an eye on other managers, such as former Juventus boss Max Allegri and RB Leipzig manager Julian Nagelsmann.

Ladbrokes Latest Betting — Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to leave Manchester United before end of October — 10/11
The bookies don’t know what’s going on within United, so don’t be banking on this purely because Ladbrokes have slashed the odds.
Solskjaer has spoke about this being his dream job for long enough and he’s going to give it his best shot until the club sacks him.
I don’t think he’d jump for the sake of not being pushed either.
