Ole Gunnar Solskjaer press conference

Solskjaer insists Man United won’t have trouble attracting players without UCL football

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Manchester United will always attract players, regardless of whether the club secures Champions League qualification.

United’s hopes of a top-four finish appear unlikely, with the club requiring slip ups from both Chelsea and Arsenal with just two games remaining.

Despite the club facing the prospect of Europa League football next season, Solskjaer says the size of the club will always prove an attractive proposition to players and insists that plenty of agents have been in touch claiming their clients would like to move to Old Trafford.

“In long-term planning we have to think about being in the Champions League next year and the fact we might not be,” Solskjaer told the press ahead of his sides away clash with Huddersfield.

“You would be surprised how many players’ agents have been telling us their players would love to be a part of Manchester United in the future. That is the lure and the potential and size of the club and we will get back to the good days.”

“We have regular meetings and I will have the final say if a player comes in or goes out.

“I’m happy with the way it’s going, although with all the players you (the media) are writing about, we are supposed to sign 250 players.”
