The report states Solskjaer’s next game could be his last as United interim boss, with the Red Devils preparing to pay the £8million required to release him from his Molde contract.

The 46-year-old notably left his other club on what initially looked like a loan of sorts, with the plan being that he’d return there.

However, the Mirror now claim United are set to take up their option to sign him full time and pay off the Norwegian side.
