United Set to Reward Ole Gunner Solkjaer with a New Deal.
United will begin negotiations with the Norwegian and also United’s ex prominent player by the end of the season, according to Dailymail, over a two-year extension.
Solskjaer’s current wage of £7 million per annum expires next year. As it could only get better, it is expected to be raised, and the move reflects the board’s loyalty to their boss.
United, currently in second position in the English Premier League table just behind Manchester City, are elated with the improvement attained under Solskjaer’s guidance.
United’s managing director, Richard Arnold, actually commended Solskjaer’s performance last week. ‘With the impressive progress he brings, there’s no one in this world as happy as me,’ Arnold said.
‘It just makes you feel so much proud when you’re in the club and you are seeing the man’s job and attitude.’ He is worth of success, and he is, which really makes me ecstatic.’
Ole Gunner Solskjaer, who was appointed in December 2018, however yet to secure a trophy with United, was knocked out of the FA Cup by Leicester City just before the international break is to commence.
They are favorites to win the Europa League this season, and the first leg of their quarter-final against Granada will take place on April 8.
Over the summer, the 48-year-old will be set to finalize a new deal with the club, while avoiding any distractions and unanswered concerns about his prospects at Old Trafford.
Solskjaer is actually anticipating to close the gap on Manchester City, helping United to fight for their first league title since Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure in 2013.
In the coming months, Solskjaer plans to invest in new players, but the club is being hesitant to initiate a bidding battle for Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland.
Earlier this month, United did some restructuring in their recruiting department, with John Murtough being promoted to football director and Darren Fletcher to technical director.
Solskjaer, however, has been given the assurance that he will remain as the Club manager rather than head coach, a vital difference when transfer targets was being discussed.
