Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is confident Manchester United will do the business in the transfer market when football returns.
With the coronavirus pandemic halting football, and its return date still up in the air, clubs may use the downtime to firm up their targets in the transfer window, which may also be delayed, and use digital scouting techniques.
When it comes to Manchester United, Solskjaer admits the club are still planning ahead when it comes to transfers, and is confident they compete in the market with their financial might.
Speaking exclusively to Sky Sports’ Gary Neville and Geoff Shreeves, Solskjaer said:
“Football is going to get back to normality at one point, and it’s very important we’re ready when that happens.
“We want to be the best at everything, and of course now is a chance to spend more time, you discuss players, discuss plans, we’ve evaluated what we need, of course with the coaching staff we’ve looked at games, evaluated games, discussing on video calls like this.”
Asked whether United can exploit the market when football returns, Solskjaer said:
“Then, the market, who knows how the market is going to react to this? Who knows which clubs need to sell players? There might be just a situation there where you can exploit, and I know that we at Man United we are one of the biggest, and the biggest, financially well-off.
“I’m sure we are capable, when we get back to normality, that we can do the business that we want to.”
