Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been left feeling confident of becoming the Manchester United manager permanently this summer after a three hour dinner with club bosses, according to reports.

Man United forever high expectations (e.g. season ’97)

Norwegian Solskjaer has turned around United’s season as caretaker boss after taking over from the sacked Jose Mourinho in December.

The former Red Devils striker has overseen 10 wins from 12 games, and only tasted defeat for the first time against French champions Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League earlier this week.

United had been sitting in sixth when Solskjaer took over, 11 points adrift of Chelsea in fourth, but are now into the top four and a point ahead of both the Blues and Arsenal .

They are also still in the Champions League, despite their 2-0 home defeat to PSG, and the FA Cup – where they face Chelsea on Monday night.

According to Irish publication The Sunday World, via the Irish Independent, Solskjaer held lengthy talks with Ed Woodward earlier this month.

The pair met in an Italian restaurant after attending a ceremony at Old Trafford to mark the 61st anniversary of the Munich Air disaster.

Executive vice-chairman Woodward is said to have been impressed with the ex-Molde chief’s attacking brand of football – which juxtaposes that of Mourinho.
