But more than that, they want the new manager to come in next summer to find the dressing room a united, happy place. "After meeting in Paris two months ago, they made him an offer this week that he was unsure about".

Solskjaer was confirmed as United's caretaker manager until the end of the season earlier this week after Jose Mourinho was sacked by Executive Vice-Chairman Ed Woodward following a disastrous first half to the new season.

Solskjaer arrived at United knowing the club are not planning to hire him in the long-term, and while he acknowledges he would love to be there permanently, he is just content to be helping out in a trying time.

"If the club was stronger at the top then their negative views would not have such an impact in the boardroom, dressing room or stands". "We would not have tolerated lads not putting a shift in".

Solskjaer, who has left his role as manager of Norwegian club Molde, said the busy upcoming schedule of matches would give all of his squad a chance to impress him. It would provide them with the first team managerial experience they are not going to get unless they have experience.

Jose Mourinho came to Manchester United full of promise, but the road turned rocky almost right away.

City will be without David Silva and Vincent Kompany for the visit of Crystal Palace on Saturday, although they could return to action during the busy Christmas schedule.

Former striker Solskjaer's immediate focus will be three points at Cardiff, which he managed for eight months in 2014 but could not keep the Welsh side in the top flight before being fired at the start of the following campaign.
