Manchester United paying Molde 500k pounds as goodwill gesture for Solskjaer


Sports looks at what comes next and the challenges that lie in wait for Solskjaer.

Molde will receive a total of £1 million from Manchester United for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. "That's got to be the short-term target". Now United is in fifth place but only two points behind fourth-place Arsenal, after losing just one of its 13 league games under Solskjaer.

"United is a club that has money but people who know me, know I will use that in a good way", he added to Norwegian TV.

While United need reinforcements across the pitch to fight for top honours, a right-back, centre midfielder and right-winger are thought to be his top priorities.

Lakers James out of National Basketball Association playoffs
With the Lakers managing the superstar's minutes down the stretch, the superstar forward has sat out two of the past three games. A lot was expected of the Lakers at the start of the season after James signed in free agency. "You came to L.A. for a 'ship".

The fans also got behind him and have regaled him with his own song, which starts: "Ole's at the wheel, tell me how good does it feel?" "That is absolutely essential".

This means that Solskjaer should have fully fit squad to choose from this weekend with the only doubt being Romelu Lukaku who could be sidelined for a couple of weeks.

Solskjaer, who scored 126 goals in 366 appearances for United, was already a hero to fans as the man who scored the stoppage-time victor in the 1999 Champions League final to complete the treble. Gracia wasn't in charge for all of those, however, and while there have been some results to forget (the 5-0 capitulation at Liverpool stands out), they acquitted themselves well against Tottenham and were massively unlucky to ship three goals against Manchester City.

During a disappointing period for the club under three previous managers, De Gea has been a rare shining light and keeping hold of one of their world-class talents is vital.

The Norwegian's back-room staff is expected to stay as it is with his assistant Mike Phelan, brought back to the club with Solskjaer in December, now in contract talks.

"He is a manager who is always keen to learn more, learn new experiences and learn from it, getting better every day".

The striker's stoppage-time goal sealed victory in the Champions League final at the Nou Camp in 1999, with the match raising funds for the Manchester United Foundation.
