Manchester United will wait until the end of the season to offer manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer a new contract, according to reports in the English media.
The Red Devils are believed to be looking to see how the club’s title challenge plays out, as well as making sure they qualify for the Champions League, before putting a formal offer on the table.
Solskjaer will have just twelve months to run on his current deal in the summer so a decision about the Norwegian’s future will need to be made pretty soon.
United are said to be prepared to hand the 47-year-old a two-year extension, keeping him at Old Trafford until 2024, as well as giving him a pay rise which would see him earn £6m a year before bonuses.
It appears the Manchester club’s erratic form has led to the club’s hierarchy to hold off on offering the contract straight away and he will have to earn his new deal.
