Report: Solskjaer to be confirmed as Manchester United's permanent manager

11 February at 14:05
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was named Manchester United's interim coach on December 19. Since then, the Red Devils have won ten out of eleven league games and have been able to work their way up to the fourth place in the Champions League table.

Initially, it was expected that Solsjkaer would lead the team until the end of the season and then return to Molde FK, where he has a contract until 2021, with United reportedly paying the club 2 million for the 'loan' of their manager. But according to the Sun, Manchester United executives and the Norwegian coach have agreed to work together beyond next summer.

One of the owners of the club Avram Glazer, as reported by the same source, led talks with the 45-year-old following the team's 3-0 win over Fulham. Reportedly there was also a meeting with his agent, Jim Solbakken, which had a successful outcome. However, the decision will only be announced at the end of the season.
