Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is not anticipating a lot of arrivals in January despite what reports claim.
Manchester United are expected to spend heavy this winter in their bid to reinforce the club ranks.
The Norwegian played down those rumours as United constantly gets linked to the likes of Jadon Sancho, Mario Mandzukic, James Maddison and Erling Haaland.
“It is not about ‘x’ amount of money [we have to spend], it is about who do we think will be good for the club in the long-term, not just three or four months,” Solskjaer said.
When asked if his targets would become available in January, the Norwegian replied, “Probably not because that is the thing – it is in January.
“Not many clubs want to sell players that they would otherwise want to keep in January. Maybe one or two could be a loan deal but that is not a big money thing, it is just to help the team. But we are getting players back and we are looking at what can be available for us.”
“First of all, the price tag, that is none of Fred’s concern, and it shouldn’t be because that is just how football has gone,” speaking about £52m signing, Fred. “The prices nowadays, you think, ‘Hmm’ but the market today is different to what it was. That shouldn’t be on Fred, that should be on us.
“Fred came in, he did well to start with. Then he hit a difficult period. Then when I came in, he found it hard, then he had a very good period. And now he is having a very good period again. He is showing what we saw in him.”
