Manchester United to offer Solskjaer new three-year contract and Ed Woodward will take lead in transfer market

According to the Telegraph (subscription required), Manchester United will open talks with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer over a new three-year contract, despite the side’s half-hearted Europa League final defeat.

The Telegraph report that the club’s board feel that Solskjaer has made progress after finishing second in the Premier League and the Norwegian reaching his first final in Europe’s secondary club competition.

Solskjaer has a year remaining on his current deal but is line for a three-year extension, which will be discussed in a summer that will also reportedly see the 48-year-old supported by up to four signings.

The Telegraph state that outgoing executive vice-president Ed Woodward will continue to head up the team’s transfer plans as Solskjaer eyes a wide forward, striker, defender and young central midfielder.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer suffered defeat in the Europa League final

Fans won’t be pleased to hear that Woodward will continue to head up the club’s transfer committee, not just because of a few underwhelming summers and failed recruits since he took the lead, but also because of his role in the defunct European Super League plans.

Woodward has already announced his resignation, which is planned for the end of the year, giving the finance man ample time to oversee another summer of transfers, much to fans’ dismay we expect.

    Ole should be sacked. We need to appoint a world class and experienced coach. Actually Conte,Zizou and Allegri are without a club and we should capitalise on the situation.
    Sincerely don’t think Ole is the right man for the job. Zizou and Conte resigned despite having done really well.
    Hope the Glazers use their logic to sort it out very soon,otherwise we will finish as

    It’s unbeliavable the mediocrity level this Club has reached. Ole is here for almost 3 years, and so little (if any) progress was made. It’s stupid to keep him, specially with better options on the market (e.g. Conte, Pochettino – I’d love to see Allegri here, but it’s too late for that).

    as a man united fan I would love to get pochettino in as our next man united manager and start getting the team to play better and attack more and really get in behind the opposition teams defences.
