Solskjaer refuses to rule out Man United signing striker in the summer

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has refused to rule out the possibility of the Red Devils signing a new striker in the summer transfer window.

United’s squad could arguably be the envy of most sides.

Despite sitting well behind rivals Manchester City in the Premier League table, the Red Devils have a wealth of attacking talent, which includes the likes of Marcus Rashford, Edinson Cavani and wonderkid Amad Diallo.

However, after struggling to score in either of their last two matches, in all competitions, speculation the club could delve into the summer transfer market in pursuit of a new forward has recently been turned up a notch.

Despite their failure to agree terms with Borussia Dortmund for number-one target Jadon Sancho last summer, United have been tipped to try again – This time for Black and Yellows striker Erling Haaland.

Haaland, 20, has previous connections to Solskjaer from the pair’s time together at Norweigan side FK Molde.

Despite moving on to RB Salzburg and later Dortmund, Solskjaer has always admitted he pays close attention to his former striker’s career.

However, despite feeling the financial repercussions the COVID-19 pandemic has had, speaking more recently, as quoted by MEN, Solskjaer has refused to rule out signing a new striker in the summer.

“We’re always looking to improve our squad, of course we are,” the United manager said. “I would never ever start to think the way you think about Edinson turning 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, Anthony and 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.”

    It’s a game not about how many strikers or center foward you have so long as they are not scoring goals and winning games. What we need are winning and scoring goals. So he should get people who can perform. Release the non performing and get in performing people
