On a stunning night in the French capital, a late Marcus Rashford VAR penalty saw United dump out Paris-Saint Germain.
Down 2-0 from the first leg, Solskjaer's troops silenced the Parc des Princes – barring the away end, as Romelu Lukaku scored twice before Rashford's glory.
Juan Bernat had equalised for 1-1 in the game, but United's 3-1 win saw them go through on away goals.
That progression has swelled the coffers at Old Trafford – and will be more than enough to pay compensation to Molde.
As SunSport has previously reported, United have agreed a £7.2million deal to make Solskjaer their new permanent manager.
Sky Sports News claimed United had formalised a compensation package with his Norwegian club which will potentially come into force at the end of the season.
Originally, Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino was the No1 choice to replace Jose Mourinho in the long-term.
But Solskjaer has stunned since he came in to steady the ship – still undefeated in 12 Premier League games.
His only loss was the first leg reversal to PSG, but he has clearly righted that wrong and in some style too.
In the Champions League, not only do Manchester United have the chance of making history but there is up to £25m more in bonus payments up for grabs.
Each side in the quarter-finals of the competition scoops £9m, and those who make it through to the semi-finals will collect a further £10.33m.
Both teams who reach the final will be paid £12.9m, with a further £3.4m extra being dished out to the overall winners.
