Man Utd chooses negotiator as manager

Manchester United’s new manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to make a deal with de Gea and Martial regarding extension of their contracts. Solskjaer has been holding Man Utd manager post for two weeks after Mourinho’s dismissal, which followed after a defeat from Liverpool.

In Soskjaer’s three matches at the post, Manchester United gained three victories, scoring 12 goals and conceding only three. The changes most of all affected the most expensive representative of the Mancuanians Paul Pogba. In three matches the Frenchman made three assists and scored four goals, having scored braces in the games against Huddersfield and Bournemouth.

Against the moral uplift, Solskjaer intends to speak with the key representatives of the Red Devils David de Gea and Anthony Martial, whose contracts expire the next season. Man Utd management has already used the option of prolonging the agreements for a year; however, the players themselves were not happy and intended to leave the team after the results with Jose Mourinho.

In an interview to the British publisher Sky Sports claimed,

“I know that the club wants them to sign new contracts, because they are high-class players.

Everything depends on the players themselves. But if you perform for Manchester United, it means that you are in the best club in the world.

I hope that I will be able and direct the players, let them understand that they want to stay in the club.”

This season in the EPL, Martial scored eight goals and made one assist in 15 matches. In comparison, last season the Frenchman played 30 matches, in which he scored nine goals and gave five assists. As for de Gea, in 20 matches in the EPL this season the Spaniard scored 32 goals and left his goal shut only twice. However, there is no de Gea’s fault in Manchester United’s bad defense. Therefore, if Solskjaer finds right words for players, they will not leave Old Trafford soon and the club management clearly needs such a manager, capable of smoothing out all the roughness of the players.
