With Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s new contract, Manchester United have made their most crucial summer signing.
The United manager has signed a contract that will keep him at the club until 2024, with a one-year extension option.

The idea of just playing as many of your best players at once may not appear groundbreaking, but it appears to elude many of England’s top club managers.
