Manchester United star Romelu Lukaku claims a ‘decision has been made’ by the club to appoint Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Red Devils recorded their ninth away win in a row in Paris on Wednesday to book their place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

The 3-1 win, sealed in dramatic fashion in injury time by Marcus Rashford, means United are the only club in the competition’s history to overturn a two-goal home defeat from a first leg.

Mauricio Pochettino had been United’s first choice to permanently replace Jose Mourinho but it’s virtually impossible now not to hand the job to Solskjaer.

And Lukaku claims that that club have already made up their mind to give the role to the Norwegian.

‘I think it has been decided,’ Lukaku told BeIN Sports.

‘I think he is going to get it, he should get it – what else does he have to do.

‘Look at the games we’ve played. Everyone was talking after the first four games we played because – no disrespect – it was against lesser opposition but then we win at Tottenham away, Chelsea away, Arsenal away – what else does he have to do?

‘He keeps us hungry and us as players we want more.’

United will now be filled with confidence as they take on Arsenal at the Emirates this Sunday.

Solskjaer hopes to have Anthony Martial back in contention, while Paul Pogba will return after missing the win against PSG through suspension.
