The Sun reports that during the meal Woodward shook Solskjaer's hand, saying: 'Here's to a long and successful relationship together, ' seemingly confirming that a deal was struck for Solskjaer to become the next Manchester United manager, following his stunning start to his tenure at Old Trafford as caretaker boss.

Former Everton manager Sam Allardyce has spoken about the readiness of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to take the permanent job at Manchester United.

The 124-time capped Chile worldwide has scored two goals in 19 appearances across all competitions this season.

United travel to Chelsea in the fifth round of the FA Cup on Monday, a game which will be shown live on the BBC.

'Sometimes I didn't play, then I did, then I didn't, and as a player you lose confidence.

According to Sun Sport, Solskjaer and Woodward discussed the finer details of the manager's next contract with the club during a dinner that lasted three hours.

"He's very talented, but of course there's only so many things you can sit down and talk about and tweak", said Solskjaer.

He added: "Ole has helped me a lot, just like he's helped all the players".

"It is the culture of this club, the generation of Beckham, Scholes, [Nicky] Butt, Gary Neville... when you come from the academy you want to play for the first team and do great things".

The Chilean has been involved in an impressive 19 goals in 20 FA Cup games (10 goals, nine assists) but is out of form and low on confidence.

The 30-year-old is behind Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial in contention for first-team spots and did his chances no good after an underwhelming display as a substitute in last week's 2-0 Champions League defeat by Paris Saint-Germain, reported Reuters.

Rumours are ripe that the player could head out of Manchester United at the end of the season and Marc Overmars feels that he should head back to Arsenal during the summer transfer window.

"Sanchez needs game time to find his rhythm but when Rashford and Martial are fit, they play, so it's hard for him".

"There's quite a few heads there where their pride has been hurt so I'm sure they'll bounce back on Monday".

"Rom is a quick player and has physical presence, but we decided on Juan [Mata] and Alexis at half-time [against PSG]", he said.
