Manchester United's Antonio Valencia resigned to summer exit

James Garner has impressed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Rio Ferdinand has backed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to be made the permanent manager at Manchester United.

United's run of form has seen them close an 11-point deficit on the top four positions to now sit one point adrift of fourth-place Arsenal in the Premier League.

Both players were struggling under former manager Jose Mourinho, but have since emerged as key players for United as they push for a top-four finish under Solskjaer.

Caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer cast further doubt on his future on Friday morning, suggesting to reporters that a new deal for him at United may hinge on him returning to fitness and impressing in the remainder of the season. "He is one of the Premier League winners left in the dressing room but at the moment I'm not sure if Manchester United and Antonio will agree on the next year".

United do have other options at right-back, including Ashley Young, who signed a one-year contract extension last month, and 19-year-old Diogo Dalot, who joined the club from Porto for £19m in June.

Bryce Harper Contract Details Reveal He Royally Screwed Himself
Several reports indicated the team was still interested in Harper after signing Machado, but that no longer seems to be the case. - After over 100 days on the free agent market, Bryce Harper has made a decision to sign with the Philadelphia Phillies .

"Because when they're at Man United, they are some of the best players in the world". The club really showed how much they wanted him back in the day when Eric (Steele, goalkeeping coach) and the gaffer (Sir Alex Ferguson) found him.

"The club and David are in dialogue", Solskjær said.

"It's out of my hands anyway, but I'm sure we'll do what we can".

The 21-year-old, who has nine league goals this season, did not start in Wednesday's 3-1 win at Crystal Palace but came on as a second-half substitute. "It might just be a few more days before he's ready", he said.

It's hard to compare them, but Edwin and Peter were never player of the year, David's meant so many points for us over the years and I would say he's the best goalkeeper in the world, Peter was at the time and Edwin at the time as well, I'm delighted with David and his personality is fantastic.
