Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: I’ve spoken to Man United about summer transfers
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he has spoken to Ed Woodward about which players he thinks Man United should keep this summer
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that he has spoken to executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward about which Manchester United players should stay and go in the summer.
The Norwegian has been settling into life at Old Trafford after having been appointed as interim boss following the sacking of Jose Mourinho back in December.
Solskjaer has rightly been earning lots of praise for the impact he has had at Manchester United and the Red Devils have enjoyed a remarkable upturn in form in recent weeks.
Manchester United’s solid form has inevitably prompted suggestions that Solskjaer could be given the job on a permanent basis at the end of the season.
David De Gea, Marcus Rashford, Ander Herrera and Juan Mata are in negotiations about new contracts at Manchester United.
Regardless of whether he stays on, Solskjaer has now revealed that he has been speaking to Woodward about summer transfers, and specifically which players he thinks the club should hold on to for next season.
Asked if he had told Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward which players he feels should stay or go, Solskjaer is quoted as saying by Sky Sports: “Yes, I have.
“We’ve been discussing the future of the club – we did that before the talk of ‘if I should stay or not’.
“My contract is up in the summer but as I’ve always done for United I give my best because you have to plan, even if I’m not here I still give my view on who I would like to see here as a supporter.
“I’d like to stay, of course, but that is not decided until the end of the season.”
Manchester United will return to Champions League action on Wednesday night when they take on Paris Saint-Germain in the return leg of their last 16 clash, having lost the first leg 2-0 last month.
