Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists Manchester United will conduct summer transfer dealings ‘the right way’ and has refused to discuss the club’s potential targets.
Attentions are beginning to turn towards the summer transfer window as clubs look to strengthen their options, with the Red Devils reportedly in the market for new additions at centre-back, holding midfield and centre-forward.
Speculation has linked the club with a whole host of names in recent weeks, including the likes of Erling Haaland and Jules Kounde, and Solskjaer insists he will be keeping his cards close to his chest regarding potential incomings.
“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,” he told a pre-match press conference ahead of this weekend’s clash with Brighton.
“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.”
Solskjaer says his recruitment team have a ‘plan’ ahead of the summer window but admits things can quickly change within football, admitting there is much to resolve within his current options before his ‘picture’ of the squad for next season is finalised.
“Of course, we have a plan ahead,” he added. “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.”
