The Baby-Faced Assassin is still unbeaten as Red Devils boss since replacing Jose Mourinho in December
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is set to pocket a huge bonus as Manchester United manager if he can secure a Champions League finish.
The former Red Devils striker has proved to be an inspired choice as caretaker boss at Old Trafford, winning eight of his first nine games in charge.
Although he was not considered first choice for the role, Solskjaer’s appointment as successor to Jose Mourinho has seen United knock Arsenal out of the FA Cup and beat Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley.
While finishing in a European place seemed unlikely under Mourinho, United are now just two points behind the Gunners and solely focusing on Champions League qualification.
And, according to The Sun, Solskjaer will be handed a ‘six-figure’ sum for his efforts if he can guide United into the fabled ‘Top Four’.
Although Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is still in the running for the full-time position, the Norwegian is likely to also be appointed on a permanent basis if he can secure a seat at the top table of European football next season.
An Old Trafford source said: “Ole has done a brilliant job so far and everyone at the club has been delighted with him.
“He’s going to land himself a nice bonus if he continues the way he’s going. Him and the whole squad will get something for getting in the top four.
“There’s so much money involved in the competition these days that it would be stupid not to give that incentive out to everyone.”
