The Sun has revealed that Manchester United are ready to offer injury-hit striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer a new Old Trafford contract.
The Norwegian forward has been sidelined for the best part of three seasons and is currently recovering from a broken cheekbone.
But United are set to offer the 33-year-old a pay-as-you-play deal.
Chief executive David Gill told the Manchester Evening News:
“We want to keep Ole at the club and we are going to sort that out.“
Solskjaer’s goal won the 1999 European Cup for United and he has battled his way back from two serious knee injuries.
Gill revealed United are willing to repay his efforts with a new deal.
“He has been a fantastic player for us and a fantastic individual. I know he wants to stay and I am sure something will be sorted out. We have to make sure any deal reflects the situation and that it is appropriate. Both parties want to make it work and I am sure we will.”
Many had feared that Ole’s career was over after his series of long-term injuries and even if fully fit, he faces fierce competition in the strikers’ positions from RVN, Rooney, Saha and Rossi- while on the right wing, the position he famously ousted Beckham from as first choice- he must fight for a first team place with Ronaldo, Park, Fletcher and Giggsy.
So a long road ahead for the United legend….
