'I don't fear the sack... yet' - Solskjaer, De Gea signs new deal

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has Manchester United's backing as David de Gea closes in on a new deal.

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer knows he is under pressure but does not yet fear for his job. The Mirror reports that Solskjaer believes the side have been unlucky to concede so many goals, but does not think that he is close to being sacked. He told the press: “There’s always pressure when you’re here, but of course I’m ­confident in what we’re doing.” 

***: Solskjaer is in a difficult place. He does not have the squad to challenge at the top but people will still expect an improvement. If he wants to impress at United then he needs to do so within the limitations of the club. That means a squad that is vulnerable to injuries, with insufficient quality and with players that have downed tools for previous managers - none of that is an excuse. 

Meanwhile, there is however good news for United boss Solskjaer if a story in the Daily Mail proves to be correct. There is a report that goalkeeper David de Gea has agreed a new deal with the club, worth £13 million after tax. The contract will run to four years with the option of a fifth, and with Alexis Sanchez out of the club on loan, it makes him the highest paid player in the squad.
