Solskjaer makes big claim on United’s slow transfer window


Of all the big clubs in England, Man United is the only club that have struggled to bring in players against what was expected by the fans and pundits.

More blame has been pointed to the fact that the club’s finances have been affected by the coronavirus pandemic but manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer still has a lot to say on this.

So far, the Red Devils have been able to bring in Donny van de Beek from Ajax and has been linked with several others.

England international winger Jadon Sancho is the top target for the club but from all indications, he will not be leaving the club this summer window as the fee for his signature was not agreed upon.

The Red Devils manager is of the opinion that the club has its plan but it is normal not to have them fulfilled at times while expressing confidence that he is happy with his current squad.

He stressed that it is important for the club to make quality signings and that is what is being looked out for in this summer transfer window but he is confident that Man United can still bring in some players before the transfer window ends in the coming weeks. HE also hinted that he is not desperate to do deals.
