Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Manchester United are targeting players with ‘personality, quality and longevity’ this summer.
The 46-year-old is preparing for his first summer transfer window since being appointed as permanent manager at Old Trafford, with reports suggesting that the club’s board are willing to significantly back the Norwegian in the transfer market.
A central defender is believed to be a priority for the club, with Tottenham’s Toby Alderweireld having been strongly linked with a move to Manchester.
Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho, Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi and Crystal Palace youngster Aaron Wan-Bissaka are also reportedly interesting the club, and Solskjaer says the club will only sign players they believe to be the ‘right fit’.
“I don’t know if all these critics know what’s happening, we’ve got scouts scouring the planet for good footballers and we’ll sign players we think is the right fit,” Solskjaer said in his pre-match press conference.
“Personality wise, price wise, quality wise and can you have longevity at this club and I’m confident we’ll get the players.”
