Prior to Friday morning’s press conference, the club confirmed that Phil Jones had signed a four-year contract extension to remain at the club until 2023.
And Solskjaer made it clear at the beginning of the press briefing that he has a picture of what the current United team should look like in the coming years, confirming that he has spoken to Ed Woodward about it.
