Solskjaer signs new three-year Man United deal


Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has signed a new contract that will keep him at Old Trafford until 2024.

The Norwegian’s previous deal was due to run out in 2022, but United have moved to agree fresh terms to extend his stay as manager. He has signed a new three-year contract with the option of another year.

United are yet to win any silverware under the 48-year-old.

“Everyone knows the feeling I have for this club, and I am delighted to have signed this new contract,” Solskjaer said in a statement.

“It is an exciting time for Manchester United, we have built a squad with a good balance of youth and experienced players that are hungry for success.

“I have a fantastic coaching team around me, and we are all ready to take that next step on our journey.

“Manchester United wants to be winning the biggest and best trophies and that’s what we are all striving for. We have improved, both on and off the pitch, and that will continue over the coming seasons. I can’t wait to get out in front of a packed Old Trafford and get this campaign started.”

The announcement comes a day after United confirmed the £72.9 million signing of Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund on a five-year contract until 2026, with the option of another year.
