Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could be free to take the permanent Manchester United job after suggesting his contract at Molde has now expired.
Solskjaer was still in charge of the Norwegian side when he was appointed interim Red Devils boss following the sacking of Jose Mourinho in December. The 46-year-old was expected to return to Molde at the end of the Premier League season, with his assistant coach Erling Moe taking charge of the Molde first-team for the start of the 2019 Norwegian Eliteserien. Solskjaer’s contract at Molde would make any move by United to appoint him on a permanent basis more complicated. However, speaking to Norwegian podcast Fotballklubben, Solskjaer suggested he was no longer under contract at the Aker Stadion, potentially clearing the way for a permanent move to United. “I’m not sure how it works. I think the contract is expired and I’m now under contract with Manchester United. I think we need a new contract there [at Molde],” he said.
