Molde Set For Huge Financial Benefit From Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Move to Manchester United

Molde Set For Huge Financial Benefit From Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Move to Manchester United

Molde are set for a huge financial benefit with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s move to Manchester United.

The Norwegian manager was this morning confirmed as permanent boss of the Old Trafford club after a very successful stint in caretaker charge.

Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho in December with United struggling domestically and in Europe.

But since then he’s managed to win 14 of his 19 games in charge, drawing two and losing the other three.

That form has kept United in the hunt for fourth in the Premier League table and Champions League football next season.

While they still have a chance of playing in Europe’s premier competition next term if they can win it – with a comeback last-16 victory over PSG setting up a tie with Barcelona in the quarters.

United have understandably moved to make Solskjaer’s appointment permanent today.

And while that will inevitably be disappointing for Molde, who won two league titles and a cup under Solskjaer, they are to benefit hugely from a financial perspective.

According to sportingintelligence.com‘s Nick Harris, Molde will receive twice as much as they’ve ever received in a transfer fee:

That is an incredible amount of money for Molde – and should see them reinvest heavily in the team going forward.

They’ll have to start with a new manager first and it looks like replacing Solskjaer will be a tough task.
