Former youth player of the year Mats Moller Daehli has left Old Trafford, heading to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Molde on a 2 year deal.
Yesterday we reported quotes from Daehli’s agent talking about a move away from Old Trafford but we assumed it was a loan rather than a permanent deal but today it has been confirmed that the 2011/2012 young player of the year will return to Norway.
Daehli told Molde’s TV Channel:
“I feel very wanted here at Molde”
Whilst Solskjaer added:
“I advised Mats to go to Manchester United, but told him he could come back to Molde to play if he wanted.”
The move comes as a surprise as it was thought that Daehli had a bright future at Old Trafford, and just last week former United defender Ronny Johnsen talked the midfielder up.
