Ole Gunnar Solskjaer plans to remain Man Utd manager and spend £200m this summer

By | February 4, 2019

Manchester United will allocate Ole Gunnar Solskjaer a summer budget of around £200 million if he lands the job on a full-time basis in summer.

The Norwegian boss is now the favourite to take charge permanently next season after winning seven of his first eight games as interim manager.

Mauricio Pochettino had been shortlisted as the club’s first choice six weeks ago but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s impressive start, combined with the complex nature of extracting the Argentine, have given the Norwegian’s chances a massive boost.

Manchester United opted against investing in January, preferring instead to save cash for the end of the campaign when their managerial situation becomes more evident.

The Red Devils are set to sign a centre-back and a right winger and have consulted Ole Gunnar Solskjaer over the strengths and weaknesses of the team.

According to the Sun, the 20-times English champions are set to heavily back the interim boss if he gets the job and will hand him around £200 million to spend.

Manchester United hope summer of spending could help the David De Gea and Ander Herrera to commit their futures to the club, following Anthony Martial’s contract extension this week.
