“After a turbulent season, everyone at Manchester United is focussed on building towards the success that this great club expects and our fans deserve,” he said.
“Preparations for the new season are underway and the underlying strength of our business will allow us to support the manager and his team as we look to the future.”
Jose Mourinho was sacked as United manager in December after a poor start to the season and a deteriorating dressing room atmosphere.
Solskjaer’s appointment as caretaker manager was successful, with United winning 14 of their first 17 games under the Norwegian.
However, since being hired on a permanent basis, Solskjaer has seen United’s form dip dramatically, with only two wins in their last 10 games.
