According to recent reports, Manchester United’s hierarchy is preparing to open talks with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer over a new three-year contract.
That’s according to the Telegraph, who claims that despite the Norweigan’s recent failure to deliver European silverware after their defeat to Villarreal in this season’s Europa League final, the club remains committed to standing by their man.
Solskjaer has one year left on his current deal but is expected to be offered three more years.
In addition to a new contract, the Telegraph also report that soon-to-be departed vice-executive chairman Ed Woodward will back the manager as the club embark on a summer spending spree.
These reports come at the same time The Guardian claim the Red Devils are targeting as many as four summer arrivals, with a combined value of £300m – these names include Harry Kane, Declan Rice, Pau Torres and Jadon Sancho.
Since arriving in place of former manager Jose Mourinho in 2019, although Solskjaer has failed to win any trophies, it is widely accepted that the club does appear to be heading in a positive direction.
