Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Outlines Transfer Plans For Manchester United
Manchester United fans have got their excitement back for football with the baby-faced assassin Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the helm for the rest of the season. He has already outlined some of his plans for the transfer window and claims that he will have an influence on the signings that United make, even if he is not in charge in summer.
Solskjaer said: "I will have an input, of course. The job now is to get to know the players, observe them and see the qualities we've got.
"I've seen more or less every game from Norway, when I've had time from the other job. But to get to know the players and think 'what can I improve them on' - that's my job.
"The club have got their recruitment and scouting, so I'm sure they've got their targets. But I've not sat down and talked about that, because my job is to get these players enjoying football."
United have been linked with several centre-backs over the past few weeks including Kalidou Koulibaly who would cost around €90m if they wanted to bring him to Manchester in January. Other players linked are Toby Alderweireld who could be a potential signing to pave the way for Mauricio Pochettino to join as permanent manager in the summer.
Things are certainly getting a lot more exciting for United fans with Solskjaer at the helm and perhaps he can do some decent business in the January transfer window unlike his predecessor. First up for the Norwegian though is to get the best out of the players that he has at his disposal.
