Central midfielder Eikrem, who is now 18, has been tipped to follow in legendary United striker Solskjaer's footsteps and has already made an impact on the coaching staff in the North West.
Eikrem's agent Jim Solbakken is planning to hold talks with club officials after being given an indication of United's intent.
Solbakken told Romsdals Budstikke: "Magnus has had a meeting with Alex Ferguson and has been told that the club want him to sign a new contract.
"We will discuss that next time I travel there."
Magnus joins United on 8 August when he celebrates his 16th birthday. He comes with a good reputation after being spotted at Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s soccer school in Norway.
He is a very skilful player that can play anywhere across the midfield, though he is predominantly a central midfield player.
He posesses bundles of ability and the United coaching staff are hopeful his skills can flourish in England after he turned down Norwegian club Molde to work with Solskjaer.....Back To Home Page...
