Premier League giants Manchester United will have to pay a compensation fee of £6m to secure the transfer of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer permanently.
This is according to the publication from Goal which claimed that Norwegian club Molde will receive a £6m compensation fee from the Red Devils if they want to make their former striker the club’s next permanent manager.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been a breath of fresh air at Manchester United since his appointment as the Red Devils’ interim manager.
The Norwegian tactician was the Molde manager before he took the Old Trafford job and the initial plan was for him to return to the club this summer upon the expiration of his short-term contract at Manchester United but his sensational managerial record has led to a change of plans on the part of the Red Devils.
During his pre-match press conference on Friday morning ahead of Sunday’s crucial Premier League clash with hosts Arsenal, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed that the reported Molde contract is non-existent and that it is not possible to have managerial contracts in two places.
Manchester United have won 14 games out of the 17 games managed by him with the only loss coming in the first leg of their last 16 tie against French champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG) which they managed to turn around.
