Former Chelsea and Inter Milan boss Antonio Conte is believed to be the leading candidate for the Old Trafford hot seat, with the Italian in the frame to take over from Ole if he fails to steady the ship.

However, Bent has sent United a fiery warning should they stick with Solskjaer, cautioning them they risk finishing seventh at the end of the campaign.

"Seventh. If they keep Solskjaer the whole season, honestly, seventh," Bent told talkSPORT when asked where United could finish this season if they stick with Ole.
"If they’re going to play the way they did against Liverpool and Atalanta, any of the top eight teams could beat them on any given day," he added.
