Man United Know The Players I Want – Solskjaer
Manchester United Manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has said the club is aware of the players he needs to strengthen his squad.
United’s move for Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho is still up in the air ahead of Monday’s deadline.
The Bundesliga club have made it clear on several occasions that Sancho will not be leaving because United missed their deadline of August 10.
On Tuesday, the Red Devils had a bid for Sancho worth up to £91.3m (€100m) rejected by Dortmund.
Solskjaer is still keen to sign a forward this summer and while his first choice is Sancho, they are looking at four alternatives – Ousmane Dembele, Ismaila Sarr, Luka Jovic and Edinson Cavani.
Donny van de Beek remains United’s only major signing in this window, after joining from Ajax on a five-year deal for a fee rising to £39m.
When asked if he felt just one signing was acceptable for United, Solskjaer told a press conference on Friday:
“We’ve got players here that we believe in. The transfer window is still open for a little while and club has been working.
“They know my view and that we’re here to strengthen, in the long-term as well.
“I’m not going to say what’s acceptable for other clubs in this difficult period.”
