Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is reportedly on an annual salary of £7.5 million, which makes him the third highest-paid manager in the Premier League.

Only Pep Guardiola (£15 million) and Mauricio Pochettino (£8.5 million) are raking in more cash than him.

So, Solskjaer is on a higher wage package than the likes of Jurgen Klopp, Unai Emery and Maurizio Sarri.

His predecessor, Jose Mourinho, was pocketing a cool £15 million a year.

Meanwhile, the 46-year-old was confirmed as United manager yesterday. He penned a three-year deal after a spectacular spell in charge as caretaker boss.

He’s recorded 14 victories in all competitions including impressive scalps over Arsenal, Spurs, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.
