Although Solskjaer will be pleased with the Red Devils' early efforts in the market, there are a number of lingering issues that will come back to bother him throughout the duration of his new three-year deal unless they are solved.
There has been no sign that he would agree to new terms at Old Trafford as of yet, which leaves the door open for a transfer elsewhere ahead of the new season.
Pogba, on the other hand, was a key player for United last season, and his presence in the middle of the pitch would be badly missed if he left.
Solskjaer cannot afford to delay his decision on whether or not to sell ahead of next season, as United would undoubtedly be anxious to prevent losing him for free in a year's time.
It appears that a new deal will need to be agreed upon as soon as possible in order to keep Pogba, but if this is not possible, Solskjaer may be forced to make the difficult decision to sell United's record signing.
With current first-choice striker Edinson Cavani approaching his 35th birthday, United manager Jose Mourinho will have to negotiate the signing of a world-class striker before his new three-year contract expires.
Last season, the Uruguayan international established himself as a key player for the Red Devils, scoring 17 goals in all competitions.
However, considering his age and inability to play 90 minutes every week, he cannot be expected to lead the line on a long-term basis.
Erling Haaland, the talisman of Borussia Dortmund, is a long-term objective for United, but the likelihood of a future transfer to Old Trafford remains doubtful due to the enormous sums of money that will undoubtedly be required to gain his signature.
In his role as Haaland's agent, Mino Raiola, who recently stated his intention to make the 20-year-old the first ever £1m-per-week player, could cause problems for United.
His outspoken style has irritated club executives in the past, particularly when it came to his representation of Pogba, and it's unclear whether Solskjaer will be willing to continue working with the divisive 53-year-old.
By the conclusion of the next three years, the Red Devils boss will be expected to deliver on the club's title-winning potential, and he will need to tread cautiously and make the correct decisions to give himself the best chance of doing so.
United have clearly put their faith in Solskjaer as he strives to restore old glory, but he will be put to the ultimate test during his new contract, and his early moves will be key in determining his true legacy at Old Trafford after everything is said and done.
Kindly share and commend.
