Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has signed a new contract that will keep him at Old Trafford until 2024, the club announced on Saturday.

The Norwegian’s previous deal was due to run out in 2022, but United have moved to agree fresh terms to extend his stay as manager. He has signed a new three-year contract with the option of another year.

ESPN previously reported that Solskjaer’s future did not depend on lifting a trophy last season, with the club committed to handing him a new deal. United are yet to win any silverware under the 48-year-old.

“Everyone knows the feeling I have for this club, and I am delighted to have signed this new contract,” Solskjaer said in a statement. “It is an exciting time for Manchester United, we have built a squad with a good balance of youth and experienced players that are hungry for success.”

The announcement comes a day after United confirmed the £72.9 million signing of Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund on a five-year contract until 2026, with the option of another year.

Solskjaer took over at Old Trafford — initially as caretaker following the departure of Jose Mourinho — in 2018.

He was appointed to the role permanently in March 2019 — signing a three-year contract — after winning 14 of his first 19 games in charge.

“Ole and his staff have worked tirelessly putting the foundations in place for long-term success on the pitch,” executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward said.

“The results of that have become increasingly visible over the past two seasons and we are all looking forward to seeing this exciting team develop further in the years ahead.

“What is especially pleasing is the way this progress has been achieved with a blend of young, homegrown talent and top-class recruits, playing attacking football in the best traditions of Manchester United. We are more confident than ever that, under Ole’s leadership, we are heading in the right direction.”

Solskjaer has won 84 of his 151 games as United boss and led the team to a second-place finish in the Premier League last season as well as the Europa League final, where they lost on penalties to Villarreal after a 1-1 draw.

He scored 126 goals in 366 games as a player for United, winning six Premier League titles and the 1999 Champions League.
