Manchester United interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted he is not sure whether he remains under contract with Norwegian club Molde.
Solskjaer has made a massive impact since leaving Molde to take over as Manchester United manager in December in the wake of Jose Mourinho’s dismissal.

Initially, there was talk of Solskjaer having been loaned to United, and that he would return at the end of the season, but a story about him signing a new three-year deal with Molde has been removed from the club’s website.
And, speaking to Fotbalklubben podcast on Tuesday, Solskjaer said he was not sure whether that deal still stood.
“I’m not quite sure how it works. I think the contract has expired and that now I only have contract with Manchester United. There may have to be another contract for that [return to Molde].”
Sky Sports News has been told a manager can only ever have a contract with one club at a time, despite the temporary nature of Solskjaer’s appointment.
He was also pictured by Norwegian broadcaster Viasport speaking with United co-owner Avram Glazer at the Parc des Princes on Tuesday ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League date with Paris Saint-Germain.
Solskjaer has turned United’s fortunes around since his arrival before Christmas, earning almost universal praise for his work at Old Trafford.
United have played 16 games under their former striker, winning 13, drawing two and suffering their only defeat when going down 2-0 in the first leg against the French champions last month.
