Solskjaer, Molde Differ On Contract With Manchester United

Manchester United may face a race to land Ole Gunnar Solskjaer a permanent deal as his Norwegian club has insisted that he still have a contract with them.

Solskjaer was appointed in December as interim manager following the sacking of Jose Mourinho and he has guided the club to the right pathway with the club hoping to make the deal a permanent one.

However, an issue arose on Tuesday when Solskjaer was asked if he still remains Molde manager as the club he said he was not sure as the club as he is currently with the Red Devils while speaking to Fotbalklubben podcast on Tuesday according to Skysports.

He said, “I’m not quite sure how it works,” he said when asked about his contract and why his biography on Twitter still read ‘Manager of Molde.’

“I think the contract has expired and that now I only have a contract with Manchester United. There may have to be another contract for that [return to Molde].

“Let’s see what it says here. No, I am…” manager of Molde”- It’s not what I am doing at the moment, but the plan is to go back there.”

Molde CEO Oystein Neerland responded to Solskjaer’s remarks by maintaining the Norwegian club’s stance that they expect him to return at the end of the Premier League season.

“Before Christmas, we signed a new agreement with Ole Gunnar for three years, until the end of the 2021 season,” Nederland told TV2 Norway.

“Afterwards Ole Gunnar has taken over as temporary manager at Manchester United, a job that goes on until the summer. Ole Gunnar is now employed at Manchester United, and plans to return to Molde after the season.”

The former Manchester United player was reported by Skysports to have been seen speaking with United co-owner Avram Glazer at the Parc des Princes on Tuesday ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League date with Paris Saint-Germain.
