Ole Gunnar Solskjaer-Manchester United

Manchester United were defeated by Villarreal in the final of the Europa League, but manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is set to be handed a new three-year contract.

According to reports, the Norwegian will be backed with new signings in this transfer market as well.

Apparently, the club are pleased with the progress this season despite the cup final defeat. Manchester United have managed to finish second in the Premier League.

Solskjaer has just one year left on his current deal, and the talks over an extension will begin soon.

The report further states that he will be allowed to bring in four new players, strengthened his squad, and closed the gap with Manchester City this summer.

Apparently, Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho is a primary target for the Manchester United manager, and he wants to bring in a striker, a central midfielder and a centre back as well.

Manchester United are set for an important summer, and they could cash in on some of their key players as well.

The likes of David De Gea or Dean Henderson could be on their way out as neither player are keen on being the second choice at Old Trafford.

Meanwhile, the likes of Jack Grealish are thought to be on Manchester United radar as well. Furthermore, French midfielder Eduardo Camavinga is a player that has been linked with United.

As far as defensive targets are concerned, Villarreal centre back Pau Torres is thought to be an option for the Red Devils.

The contract situation of Paul Pogba is up in the air as well, and Solskjaer will have to sort it out.

The £89 million signing has just one year left on his contract, and it will be interesting to see if the Red Devils can convince him to sign a new deal.
