While he has had his fair share of critics, it is undeniable that Manchester United have shown incredible progress under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. When he was appointed as the manager, the Red Devils were struggling for a top four spot. Now, they are sitting at second in the Premier League table and with a couple of good signings, could even make a run for the title in the near future.
The Norwegian manager’s current contract is set to run out in the summer of 2022. And it has been rumoured recently that he could be handed a new deal soon.
But there have also been contrasting claims suggesting that that will happen only if he can guide the team to a trophy this season. Otherwise, Solskjaer might be shown the exit door.
Now, it looks like we have the answer though. According to Daily Star, he is set to be handed a new contract even if he fails to guide the Red Devils to a trophy this season, as the club believe that he is the right man for the job.

Solskjaer looks set to remain at Manchester United for the foreseeable future
Solskjaer has done a brilliant job ever since taking over at Old Trafford. Is he the man to guide the club back to the glory days and deliver trophies on a consistent basis? That remains to be seen. But for the time being, he does look like the right man for the job.
The Red Devils sit at second in the Premier League table and although they have been eliminated from both of the domestic cup competitions, they are in the last eight of the Europa League. In the quarter-finals they will take on Granada and will be the favourites going into the tie.
Thus, while Manchester City might end up lifting the Premier League title at the end of the season, there is still a decent chance that Solskjaer could deliver some silverware.
