Solskjaer warns there will be ‘no quick fix’ for Manchester United in summer transfer market

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has warned there will be ‘no quick fix’ as Manchester United prepare to enter the transfer market this summer.

The 46-year-old is preparing or his first summer transfer window since being appointed as the club’s permanent manager, and is believed to have been handed a significant transfer budget.

United enjoyed a disappointing window last summer, with marquee £52m signing Fred having failed to convince, however Solskjaer is confident the club can enjoy a successful summer.

“Yeah because I’ve been speaking to the club, we know that we have to be realistic and have a job to be done there’s no quick fix,” Solskjaer told the press ahead of Sunday’s trip to Everton.

“It’s not like buy seven players and we’re in the right shape, we have to take step by step and there’ll be signings made but also has to be thoughts about players, sit down, have a pre-season.

“I can’t wait for it to come, there’ll be some additions, the players have got to come back and know what is expected of them take ownership of that while on holiday.

“And it will be great to see who’s coming back and as I said first of all this focus has to be on Everton.”
