The Manchester United hierarchy is set to back the Norwegian despite recent results not going in the favour of the Red Devils.

Since Solksjaer was appointed as permanent manager in March, United have won only two out nine matches played losing five.

They also crashed out of the UEFA Champions League in this time and their draw at Huddersfield town means they won’t be participating in the competition next season.

The 45-year-old was of the belief that his side should have players that are suitable to United’s idea of football rather than a Marquee name on the team sheet but given the recent scenario, it looks like it won’t be the case.

The Likes of ex-Man City youngster Jadon Sancho are touted to be the likeliest of targets United will pursue in the summer.

The Old Trafford outfit have suffered massively due to their central defensive crisis along the course of the season and it will be one area where reinforcements could be needed at the earliest.

Kalidou Koulibaly, Raphael Varane are being presented as options but Woodward will know that these stars will come at a premium.

The future of many of the present Red Devils stars like Paul Pogba, Alexis Sanchez, David De Gea and Romelu Lukaku will also need sorting in the summer.

Apart from the £100million promised by Woodward, Solksjaer will also look to fund his campaign with the sales of the likes of Eric Bailly, Matteo Darmian and Marcos Rojo.

The Norwegian hinted at a massive squad overhaul in the summer saying,

“Now is not the time to talk about individuals.

“It might be the last game for many players.”
