Ole Gunnar Solskjaer seems likely to be appointed as the full-time gaffer of Manchester United soon.
The Norwegian has certainly earned the permanent spot after his antics as of recent, and despite the two back-to-back losses against Arsenal and Wolves, confidence is still high at Old Trafford for their legendary striker.
Regardless of his role in the season to come, Solskjaer has made it clear that he is already providing his inputs for the club’s future. Pre-season plans are already underway, and now, the next big headache for the side to tackle is the summer transfer window.
Both the ins and outs from the club will be dependent on who occupies the hot-seat from next season. If Solskjaer continues to be that individual, he may have already decided on the players to be axed from his roster.

As per the Daily Star (via the Metro), Solskjaer has decided on three players who will have to be sold or released in the summer.
Alexis Sanchez, Marcos Rojo, and Antonio Valencia don’t feature in the club’s long-term plans. Of these, the exit of Valencia is the most likely, as the Ecuadorian has all but confirmed that his contract won’t be renewed in the summer.
Rojo, despite being given an extension last season, hasn’t featured prominently under the Norwegian, and could be looking at an exit if the present run of games continues.
This leaves Alexis Sanchez, who has been yet another disaster in a no.7 jersey. In addition to failing at being good on the pitch, his high wage packages are believed to be causing massive issues in the negotiations of David De Gea’s contract extensions.
By selling the Chilean, Solskjaer apparently hopes to acquire enough funds to be redistributed on younger acquisitions, and the name of Jadon Sancho has been prominent.
