Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted that Manchester United are facing a big summer.
Following the initial resurgence after Solskajer’s appointment, Manchester United have since endured a dismal run of form having won just two of their previous 10 fixtures.
Sunday’s 1-1 draw at bottom club Huddersfield ended their top four hopes, with the club missing out on qualification for next season’s Champions League.
United also have contract disputes with several first-team players, with the likes of Ander Herrera, Juan Mata and Antonio Valencia out-of-contract at the end of the season and stars such as David De Gea and Marcus Rashford stalling on signing new terms.
Solskjaer admits the club face a big summer, as the 46-year-old plots a major overhaul of his squad.
“Of course it’s big,” Solskjaer admitted in Friday’s pre-match press conference.
“There are players whose contracts have run out, some players will definitely come, there’s some young players coming in, I’ve worked with the club, recruitment, with the analysis department, we’ve identified some players we think will fit the Man United squad and let’s hope we can get some over the line.
“It’s not easy, it’s never easy even if players come they’re at clubs. We’re not going to talk names, it’s not like you just go into the shop and choose because there are clubs as well.
“I don’t know how many have been mentioned since I came in and there are players I’ve barely seen that I’ve read we’re going to sign. The earlier you can do the transfers, the better it is because when you come on July 1, you want to have a nice picture of what this team is going to be looking like.”
