Ole Gunnar Solksjaer make transfer promise to Man United fans as Star tells team-mates he wants Old Trafford move

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has promised Manchester United fans that the Red Devils will make some major moves in the summer transfer window.

All eyes will be on Old Trafford this summer as Solskjaer looks to add to his squad ahead of his third full season in charge at the club.

Solskjaer led Manchester United to a second-placed finish in the Premier League table this season, with the Red Devils having ended up 12 points behind champions Manchester City.

Although the Red Devils did show signs of improvement under Solskjaer this term, they still ended up without a trophy after they lost the Europa League final to Villarreal.

Attentions will now turn to the summer transfer window and the players Solskjaer could look to bring in ahead of the new campaign.

And the Norwegian head coach has now indicated that the Red Devils are in the market for some major additions as they prepare for the new campaign.

Speaking in an interview with TV2, Solskjaer said: “We were the second-best team, but too far behind to threaten the champions. We have to strengthen ourselves.

“Of course, something will happen in the transfer window.

“The world has become very different than it was 15 or 16 months ago, but we have to make some moves in the transfer window and also with the team.”

Right-back tells England team-mates he is open to Atletico exit.

Kieran Trippier has told England team-mates he is keen to secure a move to Manchester United.

The Red Devils are considering a summer swoop for the Atletico Madrid ace as they try to build a squad capable of challenging for the Premier League title next season.

Boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes the 30-year-old is the ideal player to strengthen his defensive options and also provide competition for Aaron Wan-Bissaka at right-back.

And though he has been a big hit in Spain, it appears the ex-Tottenham man is excited about the prospect of a switch to Old Trafford in his native North-West if the opportunity arises.

The former Burnley defender remains central to Atleti’s plans having been instrumental in helping Diego Simeone’s side to the LaLiga title.

But United believe they can persuade the Spaniards to strike a deal if they come up with a bid in the region of £15million-£20m.

Should they succeed it would be a big challenge for Wan-Bissaka.

The 23-year-old is strong defensively but has struggled to show consistent quality going forward.

And according to SunSport Man United are considering switching Wan-Bissaka as a centre-half.

Solskjaer is likely to experiment with the new position in pre-season.

It would make United’s backline more flexible if he could copy Kyle Walker at Manchester City and play both slots.
