Manchester United have constantly been in contact with some Italian managers as they plan for life after current boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer if results dwindle further under his watch.
Solskjaer and his players have not scored any goal in each of their last three games in the league and that barren run has seen them pick up just one point from those maximum nine points.
According to Tribal Football, a reliable source in Italy revealed that Manchester United have been in touch with some Italian managers over the managerial role at Old Trafford.
For now, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has the backing of club executive Ed Woodward and other board members despite the run of inconsistent results in recent weeks.
Ahead of the next league game at fellow Champions League challengers Chelsea on Monday night, Manchester United are in eighth position on the table and six points off the top four places. Chelsea occupy the fourth spot on the league table which is the last Champions League place.
