Ole Gunnar Solskjaer joins Man United
A day after sacking Jose Mourinho, Man United have appointed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as their new interim boss.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s arrival should give Man United fans a boost.
The former striker will forever be a legend at Old Trafford after scoring the winning goal in the 1999 Champions League final against Bayern Munich.
How much did Man United pay Molde?
It’s been a costly week for Man United with their managerial changes.
According to reports on Tuesday, Man United have to pay off Jose Mourinho to the tune of 24 million pounds.
While Man United have now incurred another cost in hiring Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Solskjaer is the current manager of Norwegian side Molde.
The league in Norway is currently on hiatus, which is why Solskjaer is free to take over in the Man United dugout.
According to the Mirror, Man United’s costs in hiring Solskjaer from Molde are as follows:
The Baby-faced Assassin agreed a three-year extension to his deal earlier this month, but it contained a clause allowing him to leave for United, providing they paid £1.8m to the Norwegian club.
(Solskjaer) could stay on if the Red Devils were to reach the FA Cup or Champions League final.
In the event that United wanted to appoint Solskjaer on a permanent basis, United would have to splash out a further £8m.
