It seems that, at present, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can do no wrong. His team are impressing on the field, he’s clearly having a fantastic influence behind the scenes, and now even his comments in the media are exciting supporters.
Ahead of Man Utd’s tie with Arsenal, Solskjaer has delivered an update on the future of a few Man Utd men, and it’s fair to say that it’s good news for the Red Devils.
Speaking about Man Utd’s contract situation, with Anthony Martial and David De Gea mentioned in particular, according to Sky Sports the Manager said: “I think the club is making progress, yeah, but I leave that to the right people to do that. I don’t really know how far away from it [we are] but hopefully we can have some good news in the coming weeks”.
Solskjaer clearly thinks that a few new deals could be on the horizon, and the fact that he mentions that news could come within weeks is great for the club. the last thing they need is to drag this out over the course of the season, as that could also lead to players perhaps looking elsewhere, particularly in the case of Juan Mata, who has been linked with a transfer by the Mirror recently.
Unsurprisingly, many Man Utd fans are delighted with this news, and they want to see Martial and De Gea commit, in particular. Lots of fans have taken to Reddit to discuss the news, and they’re very excited indeed…
