Having spent three impressive months in the interim role at the helm of his beloved club, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has finally been appointed as the permanent manager of Manchester United.
The Norwegian tactician has signed a three-year deal with the Red Devils, but if things go well, he could end up staying with the Old Trafford club beyond 2022.
Keeping in mind the 6-month interim stint, Ole had initially moved to Manchester without his family, agreeing a six-month lease on an apartment in Hale.
But now that he has bagged the full-time role, Solskjaer has confirmed that his wife Silje, and their three children – Noah, 18, daughter Karna, 15, and Elijah, 10 – will be moving to England once their ongoing school year comes to an end.

“We’ve really enjoyed the last eight years in Norway. Living there, it’s going to be a change for them but we’re looking forward to it (moving to Manchester together),” Solskjaer admitted (via M.E.N.).
“These three months, or six months, we agreed we’d do it separately as a family as there wasn’t any need to move them over [in case he returned to Molde]. That’s gone now, we’ll be moving over together.”
The Solskjaer family will be moving back to their Alderley Edge home, which is currently being rented by Liverpool‘s star defender, Virgil van Dijk.
Thanks to Manchester United‘s latest managerial announcement, the Dutchman will be forced to start looking for a new home to move into come summer.
Ole, who has previously joked about evicting Van Dijk, confirmed his intentions when he added: “We built a house, or I started it, in 2007, finally maybe in 2019 we can move into it. That’s a lot of planning.”
