Ole Gunnar Solskjaer might be an interim boss at Old Trafford, but that hasn't deprived him of the powers enjoyed by a permanent manager at any other club in the world. According to The Sun, the Norwegian could also decide the fate of a bunch of stars at Old Trafford.
The United hierarchy will also consider his views in the cases of Antonio Valencia and Phil Jones, who also are in the final months of their deals.
Solskjaer will also have a major say in the future of Andreas Pereira. The Brazilian is rumoured to be frustrated and looking to leave the club, but more game time could convince him to stay put.
Manchester United recently extended David De Gea's stay by twelve months and the positive results under the 46-year-old coach could play a major role in securing his future at the club. The Spanish shot-stopper is wanted by Juventus and Paris Saint Germain.
