Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s agent meets Manchester United chiefs
Glazer attended a United match for the first time since the Champions League defeat to Juventus at Old Trafford in October and was sat next to Woodward. Solskjaer’s representative Jim Solbakken was also in the directors’ box and spoke with the United board members.
The attendance of a Glazer sibling, and that of Solbakken, is potentially significant as United consider their next permanent managerial appointment. United made it 10 wins from 11 under Solskjaer at Craven Cottage and have risen into the top four for the first time since the opening day of the season. Solskjaer’s predecessor, Jose Mourinho, said it would take a ‘miracle’ for United to finish in a Champions League qualifying spot.
Woodward usually attends every United game and often visits the dressing room after matches to congratulate the players, while the Glazer siblings have also entered the dressing room in the past.

Solskjaer met Glazer in the visitors’ dressing room but did not elaborate on what he discussed with Avram, one of the six Glazer siblings who co-own United.
“Well I’ve just spoken to him outside,” Solskjaer said. “He came into the dressing room. Of course they’re all happy after winning the game. Who I meet and when I meet people is not really up for me to tell!”
Solbakken’s client, Håvard Nordtveit, joined Fulham last month from Hoffenheim. However, Nordtveit is yet to make an appearance for the Cottagers.
