Since his dismissal by Manchester United in November 2021 amid a string of unfavorable outcomes, Solskjaer has been without a managerial role.

During his tenure at Old Trafford, the Norwegian oversaw 149 matches as the permanent manager, in addition to 19 games as caretaker boss following Jose Mourinho’s departure.

In his inaugural full season leading Manchester United, Solskjaer guided the team to an impressive second-place finish in the Premier League.

However, his tenure came to an end in the subsequent campaign after a humiliating 4-1 defeat to Watford.

Despite purportedly receiving multiple job offers, Solskjaer declined them all, opting to wait for the right opportunity.

According to Turkish journalist Yagiz Sabuncuoglu, the 50-year-old has now been extended a one-and-a-half-year deal to assume the role of the new Besiktas head coach.

The journalist does not disclose whether Solskjaer has accepted the offer. Nonetheless, NTV Spor (via Goal) suggests that the former United boss is strongly leaning towards finalizing the deal.

It is reported that he has been engaged in discussions with the Super Lig club for some time, especially since the departure of Riza Calimbay.

Calimbay left his position at Tüpraş Stadyumu on December 21 following a 3-1 home defeat to Alanyaspor.

Besiktas currently holds the fifth spot in the league standings, trailing Fenerbahce, the league leaders, by 17 points.

Calimbay’s stint as Besiktas manager lasted only a month, encompassing seven matches, where he secured three victories, suffered three defeats, and managed a solitary draw.

If Solskjaer accepts the role, he is poised to become Besiktas’ third permanent coach this season.
