According to reports, Manchester United are ready to offer a new two-year deal to manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but on the condition he can qualify the club for next season’s Champions League.
The Norwegian was handed a three-year deal when he was named manager on a permanent basis in 2019 and he has 18 months to run on his existing contract.
He has reached four semi-finals during his time with the club but is yet to win a single silverware for the club for far.
Currently, we are second in the Premier League standings, five points behind crosstown rivals and league leaders Manchester City who have a game in hand.
The United board are said to be pleased with his work at the club so far and are willing to offer him a two-year extension this summer, but report from The Sun claim that the club must first qualify for the Champions League.
With the unpredictability of the league, club chiefs want Champions League qualification to be mathematically certain before sanctioning a deal.
Meanwhile, we still remain in contention for silverware in both the FA Cup and Europa League as well.
