Solskjaer said: "The owner is a winner and he wants all of his businesses to be successful. Now he trusts me to make the football decisions.

"In the short term it is important that we stay in the Premier League, but then again he has reassured me that we are looking to strengthen if the right people are available.

"It is not like I have X amount of money. It is my job to find value for money and put it to him. He has been very open for discussion.

"It is a great football club and a top 10-place is the medium and long term aim, and who knows what can happen in the long, long term?"
