Man Utd ready to hand Solskajer bumper new contract

Manchester United are ready to offer manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer an improved new deal.

The Norwegian gaffer penned a three-year deal when he was given the Old Trafford job full-time in March 2019.

ESPN reports the club have seen enough progress to offer the former super sub a new deal.

The 48-year-old is approaching his final year in the summer and United brass are wary of causing too much speculation if negotiations drag on.

The club are planning for the long-term under Solskjaer and have installed John Murtough as football director and Darren Fletcher as technical director with the pair's relationship with the manager key in securing their roles.
