After failing to win a trophy with Manchester United for four years and losing the Europa League final to Villarreal, the club is set to shock their fans with a new contract for manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. According to reports, the fans are hoping the club will fire the manager and employ one of the top coaches who just resigned from their various clubs, but the club’s management thinks otherwise.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to be Offered New Contract with Manchester United
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer himself will be shocked to receive a new contract offer from the club after four years without a single trophy in the club as manager. Manchester United is reportedly set to offer the manager a new contract and significant funds to spend in this summer’s transfer window.
Despite ending the season without a trophy and suffering a disappointing defeat to Villarreal in Wednesday’s Europa League final, the Glazers are still convinced that the Norwegian is the right man to take the Red Devils forward. According to reports, Solskjaer will be offered a new three-year contract to stay at the club, with his current deal set to expire in June 2022.
Both Solskjaer and United’s hierarchy acknowledge that to make the next step and challenge rival Manchester City for the Premier League title, new additions to the squad must be made this summer. United are prepared to back their manager in the transfer market this time around and target a new defender, central midfielder and a wide forward.
The likes of Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho, Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish, Real Madrid’s Raphael Varane are major targets for United. Also, they hope for the return of Cristiano Ronaldo from Juventus as well.
