Manchester United head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is reportedly set to put pen on a new deal with the club and will be handed significant funds to strengthen his team this summer.
Despite ending the campaign without a trophy and suffering a disappointing loss to Villarreal in Wednesday’s Europa League final, the Glazers are still convinced that the Norwegian manager is the right man to take the 20-times English forward.
According to the Daily Telegraph, the Norwegian boss will be offered a new three-year deal to remain at Old Trafford, with his current contract set to expire in June 2022.
Both Solskjaer and the Red Devils hierarchy acknowledge that in order to make the next step they have to splash money and strengthen their squad.
The report also claims that there is a general feeling at the team that this summer’s transfer window could define the 48-year-old’s reign.
The 20-times English champions are prepared to back their manager in the transfer market and will look to target a new centre-back, midfielder and winger.
Borussia Dortmund forward Jadon Sancho remains a top target this summer, while the Red Devils have also been rumoured with Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish, Real Madrid’s centre-back Raphael Varane as well as the potential return of Juventus forward Ronaldo.
