The Manchester United hierarchy believes it's seen enough progress from the first team to award Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with a new contract, sources told ESPN's Rob Dawson.

Solskjaer has yet to win silverware since initially taking the managerial reins on an interim basis in December 2018. Even if the trophy drought continues beyond this season - the club still has a shot at glory in the Europa League - the board reportedly remains committed to keeping Solskjaer beyond his current deal, which expires in June 2022.

The club and Solskjaer are both seemingly relaxed about the situation, but the former doesn't want the Norwegian to get too far into the final year of his contract and therefore prompt speculation about his future.
