Solskjaer said: “Challenging for every trophy, that’s what we should be about.

“Two years’ time is long enough, but it’s also short enough, to say that we’ve got the possibility to make a big difference.”

Woodward, United’s executive vice-chairman, will make his choice in the summer.

But Solskjaer revealed: “I’ve got a picture of what this Man United team should look like in a couple of years.

“I put my views to Ed Woodward and the club. If we don’t dream and we don’t have that vision of where we are going then we will just falter.

“We’ve got the resources and the infrastructure and the history to move towards the top — and that is the only way we should think about things at Man United.”

United face lowly Fulham today looking to stretch a ten-match unbeaten run since Solskjaer replaced the axed Jose Mourinho.

That streak which helped the Norwegian win the Premier League manager of the month prize.

Striker Marcus Rashford also won the player of the month award.

It is the first time a United player and boss have got the award in the same month since Alex Ferguson and Dimitar Berbatov in 2011.
