Solskjaer offers an update on United’s transfers

Solskjaer’s words on the remainder of the window

Solskjaer acknowledged, “Anything from now is a bonus.” “I have to say that with the two signings we’ve got, we’ve strengthened where we wanted to strengthen. Let’s see what happens. You never know in football. Anything can happen, ins and outs.”

When talked about Pogba, the manager said, “I hope every player thinks this is the place to be to win trophies. When you sign for Manchester United, you have to rise to the challenge. Paul has come back and he’s fresh and he’s always such a positive boy. The talks I’ve had with him have all been positive.”

Ole also talked about squad players like [player 164061], [player 1004] and [player 820] saying, “We need a big squad.”

“The start is important, the whole season is important, but you need to arrive in April and May fresh and with enough options. Some might go on loan until Christmas, some might go for a season but I don’t want to be too light in any position.”

Later, he came onto the goalkeeping situation and said, “I enjoyed having one first-choice right-back when I played but I never had one,” Solskjaer joked. “It depends on the characters you’ve got and how they gel. It’s healthy competition. If you’re too comfortable, I don’t think you get the best out of yourself.

“You need an edge and you need an edge of ‘if I don’t perform, someone else is going to take my place but it has to be healthy for the team and healthy for the group. If it’s toxic and it’s energy-sapping that’s not great. Last year it was a new situation for [player 832] and a new situation for [player 12647]. This year, let’s see how it works out.”

Ole also said a few words about challenging Manchester City for the Premier League title, “You put every season into blocks but the first six or seven games, they’re very important to set the momentum and to give you a chance. I read somewhere that Pep (Guardiola) said you can’t win the league in the first eight games but you can lose the chance to win it and that’s what happened to us last season,” Solskjaer said. “I felt we lost too many points early on. From November 1 until the [team 42] game in May, we only lost one league game. That was the consistency we want to see again.”

Briefly, What to expect from Man United this season?

After a decent season last time out, [team 14] are expected to finally put up a strong challenge to their city rivals, [team 9]. Both the Manchester clubs have had an amazing transfer window. For the blue side of Manchester, the transfer window could get even better with [player 997]’s situation up for grabs.

The red devils look done for this window after doing some brilliant business. Finally, [player 538034] is a Manchester United player and will elevate their performances dramatically. Also, this summer, a defensive signing was inevitable, but someone as successful as [player 95807] wasn’t expected. However, the four-time [league 2] winner and the [league 732] winner has left [team 3468] for a new challenge. [player 160206] has improved well in the last couple of seasons but has never convinced on the highest level. To challenge Man City, you need a top-class defensive partnership, and apparently, United have now got it. Lindelof is a decent player to have on the bench but not ready yet for that level of expectation.

As far as the attack is concerned, they have lacked a proper right winger for some years now. Last season well, most of their attack came down the left with Rashford and [player 955]. The likes of [player 5149] and Martial both prefer to play down the left. Sancho is going to completely change the game for United. Now, opposition defences will have to focus on both sides rather than just one of them, which was very much the case last season.

[player 1878] is set to miss the start of the season and could miss the first few games. It means that [player 1829] will have a great opportunity to play his favourite role down the left side. [player 20333643] could be the man upfront because [player 96088] won’t play week in week out at this age. With Sancho’s creativity now a major weapon, it could get the best out of Martial. He has usually missed a creative player around him. Sancho’s presence could also get the best out of Greenwood as well as [player 1992].

Without any doubt, Man United are in for a big season ahead, and this could be [coach 524307]’s last chance to win silverware.
