Solskjaer sends message to Rio Ferdinand over transfer decision


Former Man United defender Rio Ferdinand has urged the Red Devils to make efforts to add more options to the attack ahead of the coming season.

The message has been gotten by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who replied by stating that he will be on the lookout for more options in the attack.

There is no doubt that the Norwegian will get busy with additions when the summer window is opened. Jadon Sancho is first on the list of those wanted at the Old Trafford.

Man United have been scoring goals in their last few games which means an improvement in the team. They were able to thrash Bournemouth by 5-2 in the Premier League game on Saturday with all strikers, including Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood getting on the score sheet.

That is not enough to bank on, according to Rio Ferdinand who thinks that attacking department still needs reinforcement.

He stressed that his former team are three starters away from being contenders and not the pretenders they have been over the years.

While admitting that there are lots of improvements to behold in the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer team, there is still need to equip ahead of the coming season to be able to win titles.
