Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been told he will move on if Manchester United do not win a trophy this season.

It comes as the Red Devils experience one of their worse silverware droughts in recent history after four years without a title.

They came closest last season when they finished runners-up in the Europa League after losing to Villarreal in the final on penalties.

But it was a competition they were expected to win without too much hassle and the defeat was bitterly disappointing.

There have been other close calls after being knocked out of the semi-final of the FA Cup and the Carabao Cup the season before.

However, United are quickly getting a target as the nearly-men – though they are looking to change all of that with their transfers this summer.

The pending arrivals of Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane have been designed to end their silverware hoodoo.

And former Arsenal star Ray Parlour reckons it could be the end of the line for Solskjaer if he does not finally lift a trophy this coming season.

“He’s under pressure… he knows that though,” Parlour told talkSPORT.

“He’s a realistic man and he’s been in great dressing rooms that were very successful under Sir Alex Ferguson.

“He knows exactly what Manchester United is all about, he knows the expectation around the world – the support they have is unbelievable, probably the best around the world of the Premier League.

“Ole Gunnar Solskjaer needs every help he can get and he’s getting good quality players in which gives him a good chance of winning trophies.

“But if he doesn’t win trophies and they have a poor season, I’m sure Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s going to be the first to admit it hasn’t worked and will move on.”

As well as Sancho and Varane, United have also got their sights set on Kieran Trippier and Eduardo Camavinga.

It comes during a summer splurge from several clubs with Arsenal already signing two players as Manchester City plan to acquire Harry Kane and Jack Grealish.
