Ole explains thoughts on transfer front

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Manchester United conduct our transfer and recruitment business in the right way.

Speculation around the summer window has already started in earnest across the globe and is likely to go into overdrive in the coming weeks and months.

The Reds will, no doubt, be linked with countless players but the manager hopes his true targets will only come to light when they are being announced as new signings.

Solskjaer names four Reds who are doubtful and handles questions on our goalkeepers.

"Who we're interested in and who we can go for and who we will go for, of course I'm not going to comment on that," stressed Ole at his press conference to preview Sunday night's Premier League contest with Brighton & Hove Albion.

“With the way the world works, at the moment, you'd like to do all our business, of course, on the quiet and all your talks on the quiet. But there are platforms everywhere, there's news and the media now makes it more and more difficult. Who can you trust?

“Hopefully, I'll sit here with players nobody has written about and thought we were not going to go to. We conduct our recruitment business and scouting the players we are interested in, we do it the right way, I hope and feel.”

When asked about the plans for the squad next term and any outgoing moves, these are already in place but the boss was again in no mood to give too much away.

“Of course, we have a plan ahead,” he stated. “A plan that we think is going to happen. Two months is a long time in football as well, things might change. There are obviously a couple of players that the future’s not decided yet. Some without contracts, some with contracts. We do have a certain picture of what the squad’s going to look like in August when we start.”
