Solskjaer Manchester United 2021

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has warned that Manchester United will have to be ‘realistic’ in the transfer window due to the budget constraints of the pandemic.

But, with the pandemic affecting the club’s finances, the United boss warned it will be another transfer window of cautious spending. Just howbadly the club have beenhit will be made public on Thursday when their next set of financial results is released.

The United boss said: “The pandemic is definitely affecting everyone in football. Of course the lack of income, the finances has affected everyone.

“We have to be realistic and responsible in the way we do our business both on and off the pitch. There are improvements on the training ground, stadium - we have to look at the whole picture.

"Where can we spend the money? And how much is there? It’s just the real world now. It has changed.”

Pushed on whether the financial situationwould affect his rebuilding plans, he replied: “You can look at it different ways with a rebuild. We also have players in the academy that we now can maybe give opportunities.

"All clubs in the world are going through the same situation so it’s no different for other clubs than for us. I think there’s just going to be less and less transfers happening in the world of football with all these changes.”

Centre-back and centre-forward are the priority positions going into another summer window with Solskjaer looking to find a partner for Harry Maguire and a prolific goalscorer to lead his attacking line.

The United boss was asked specifically if he would be going after a striker when the window opens again.

He replied: “We’re always looking to improve our squad, of course we are. I would never ever start to think the way you think about EdinsonCavaniturning 35 next year because he’s just turned 34. You and I have different mentalities - that’s a completely different way of thinking.

“And I always say with Mason Greenwood, Anthony Martialand Edinson, when we can really get them firing that means we’re a very good team. But we’re always looking at better players, of course we are.”
