According to The Sun, Manchester United caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has landed the job on a full-time basis following a three-hour meal with the executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward.
There has been no official announcement as of yet but one is expected to come in the summer once the 2018/19 season comes to an end.
The former United super-sub has impressed in the hotseat and has already performed beyond expectations in his role as interim boss. Solskjaer suffered his first defeat as manager of the club during the week, losing 2-0 at home to Paris Saint-Germain, and he will hope his players respond with a win over Chelsea in the FA Cup on Monday.
Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino is also in the running for the job, but as time goes on it looks like he will remain at the London club after they finally move to the new stadium.
One of Solskjaer’s biggest wins yet was an away win over Spurs in the league. He showed tactically he can deal with the managerial big dogs and that certainly raised his claims for the United job.
The Reds are now playing attractive football with their best attacking players flourishing. It’s no wonder so many thought José Mourinho’s pragmatic ways were holding back several stars.
