According to Sky Sports, Manchester United paid £1.8 million – which equates to 20 million Norwegian Krone – in order to bring Ole Gunnar Solskjaer over to the club as their new interim manager. The whole deal is a little bit bizarre and unique, given that ‘loans’ for managers aren’t really all too common at all.
The Red Devils moved quickly in order to bring Ole into the fold, leading many to wonder whether or not they’d had this plan in place for quite some time.
Solskjaer is a fan favourite at the club dating all the way back to his playing days, with his major highlight coming in the 1999 Champions League final when he scored the winner for United against Bayern Munich.
If Ole does end up doing a fantastic job and the club want to bring him in on a more permanent basis from Molde, then they’d then have to pay £7.2 million which equates to 80 million Norwegian Krone.
