Ole Gunnar Solskjær discusses Manchester United’s transfer window plans

Solskjær set to have an input in transfers

Manchester United’s interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjær discussed the clubs plans during the January transfer window on Friday afternoon.

The Norwegian came into the club following the sacking of Jose Mourinho, who was dismissed after the loss to Liverpool in December.

The atmosphere around the club had become toxic and the players just simply didn’t look right.

Though, Ole Gunnar Solskjær has come in and revitalised many of the first-team playing staff.

Players like Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford have all improved under his tutelage.

While it is likely that Solskjær will be moved on in the summer, he could actually have some input in transfers.

“I’m here to voice my opinion”

According to the man himself, he will voice his opinion on potential deals and will potentially sit down with Ed Woodward if anything comes up.

He also revealed that the transfer window has ‘probably’ been planned since the summer.

Though, he admitted his job is to improve the players they already have.

“The club’s probably had a plan,” he explained, as quoted by the Mirror.

“You don’t just plan the next day and next month but this transfer window has probably been planned since the summer and year before, the next transfer window, the structure is phenomenal.

“I’m sure they’ve got their targets, I’m here to voice my opinion on that and I’m sure we’ll sit down, me and Ed if we’ve got anything in the pipeline.

“I’m here to work with the ones I’ve got, they’ve all performed and as long as they perform they should get a chance but that’s my job to improve the team and individuals.”
