Manchester United's interim manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, said that the club is optimistic that they can return to playing in the Champions League next season and Solskjaer has given his verdict regarding which players the club must retain.
This is not something new for Manchester United. Because since the departure of Jose Mourinho, Solskjaer has made several important decisions such as selling Marouane Fellaini and extending Anthony Martial's contract, Ashley Young, and Phil Jones.
While there are still some players who are currently negotiating with the club to extend the contract under the leadership of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, such as David de Gea, Marcus Rashford, Ander Herrera, and Juan Mata.
Solskjaer also revealed that this plan is well-appreciated by Man United's deputy executive chairman, Ed Woodward, and future plans had been discussed. He outlinedthe number of players who will survive and who will leave in the upcoming 2019/20 season.
"We have discussed the future of the club - we did that before the talks about whether I would be at the Old Trafford or not," Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said SkySports.
"My contract will expire in the summer but as I always do for United, I give my best because you have to plan, even if I'm not here I still deliver my views of who I want to see here as a supporter."
"I want to stay, of course, but that hasn't been decided until the end of the season."
Solskjaer managed to transform into a savior for the Red Devils after Man United had to stumble in the middle of the table under the direction of Jose Mourinho.
But Solskjaer's future at Old Trafford still seems gray, because until now he has yet to get certainty about his status as a permanent coach.
