Solskjaer understands that sales are an unfortunate consequence of relegation, and he is readying his side for a return to the second tier.
“I am resigned to losing both players, we are more or less planning for the new season without them,” said Solskjaer.
“The boys have expressed a wish to play Premier League football again next season and we are resigned to losing them.
“I am not going to take an injury risk by playing them in pre-season fixtures.
“It’s up to them now to make a decision. Of course, if they decide to stay with Cardiff that’s a different matter, but both expressed they want to play Premier League football and we can’t give them that this season.
“In theory, I am resigned to losing them and feel that they won’t be involved in the coming season.
“There have been loads of approaches, but they still haven’t made up their minds.”
