The brilliant results by interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer while dealing with Manchester United had provided the Norwegian coach, the chance to be permanent at the end of this season.
Since being appointed as Manchester United's interim manager in December 2018, Solskjaer managed to register 10 wins from 11 matches for the squad, nicknamed the Red Devils.
Manchester United also slowly crept up on the Premier League standings. Now, Manchester United are ranked fourth in the Premier League standings with a collection of 51 points.
Impressive results make United reportedly plans to appoint Solskjaer as permanent manager. As reported by The Sun on Monday, officials of Manchester United reportedly agreed to see Solskjaer as a permanent solution.
However, the decision will only be announced at the end of this season. Solskjaer was appointed as interim manager after Manchester United fired Jose Mourinho, late last year.
At that time, Manchester United chose to use the services of Solskjaer for a while while looking for a permanent successor of Mourinho.
However, the hunt for new Manchester United managers seems to have ended. Manchester United officials, Joel and Avram Glazer, reportedly have found the perfect manager in Solskjaer.
Avram Glazer came directly from America to watch the Manchester United match against Fulham which ended with a 3-0 victory on Saturday for his side.
After the match, the Manchester United leader was reported to have met Solskjaer in the dressing room. They talked about the possibility of of the Norwegian getting the job as Manchester United's permanent manager next season.
The news will end speculation that Mauricio Pochettino could be tempted away from Spurs to Old Trafford next summer.
