EVICTION NOTICE, VIRGIL
MANCHESTER UNITED caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has joked that he is ready to boot Liverpool star Virgil van Dijk out of his house as the club look to make the Norwegian’s return to Old Trafford permanent.
Solskjaer became the Dutchman’s landlord last year when Van Dijk was looking for a place to live, following his £75million move to Anfield, and opted to rent the United manager’s empty £4m mansion just outside Manchester. The tenancy meant Solskjaer was forced to move into the Lowry Hotel when he was asked to replace Jose Mourinho on a temporary basis in December.
But his stunning impact as manager is set to land him the job permanently.
And that means Van Dijk (left) will have to find a new home.
Asked whether he had spoken to the Liverpool defender about his living arrangements ahead of United’s clash against Arsenal at Old Trafford today, Solskjaer joked: “Yeah, he’s evicted.”
