Solskjaer is obviously building a team of young players who will be available at Old Trafford for a long period of time. Marcus Rashford, Martial, Lingard, and McTominay are relatively young and they were joined by Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bisaka in the summer as part of Solskjaer’s young policy.
Mason Greenwood, Axel Tuanzebe, Brandon Williams, James Garner and Tahith Chong have all made it to the first-team squad from the academy and the investment in youngsters will most likely continue in January as Sean Longstaff (Newcastle) and 22-year-old Timo Werner are being linked with the Red Devils boss.
Unfortunately, Solskjaer’s youthful approach hasn’t produced the desired results as they are placed in the 14th position after 9 round of matches.

The unfavorable position in the League standings is reportedly set to force Solskjaer into signing more experienced players in the winter transfer market.
At least three players who are said to be attracting the manager’s attention are 30 years and above.
Juventus star Mario Mandzukic is 33 years of age and he’s believed to be United’s top target ahead of the January transfer window.
Former Liverpool star Emre Can is 30, while Thomas Muller, who is also linked with a move to the Old Trafford outfit, is 30 years of age.
Judging by the reports making headlines in England, United could have at least three players who are in their early or late 30s in the second half of the season.
