Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s impact on the pitch has been glaringly obvious for all to see, as Manchester United have made it five wins from five since his arrival.
However, it seems as though the Baby Faced Assassin is also doing his bit off it, too. According to The Sun, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has convinced Ander Herrera to remain at Old Trafford beyond his current contract.
The 29-year-old is out of contract this summer, which means he is now free to talk to overseas clubs about signing a pre-contract elsewhere. Now, Solskjaer has told the Basque that he has a future at the Theatre of Dreams and it seems as though he is ready to commit to a new long-term deal.
Previous contractual discussions had broken down due to a disagreement on wages, but now it looks as though both parties will find it much easier to reach an agreement – with it being likely that Herrera has lowered his demands due to the fact that he feels regular playing time will now be offered to him.
Right now, Herrera is probably United’s second-best midfielder and he should be starting pretty much every week when fit. He brings an energy and a purpose to the side, and his busy attitude cannot be understated – particularly when playing against the elite Premier League teams.
Hopefully, the deal will be done in the coming weeks, putting all talk about his long-term future to bed.
