Man Utd boss Solskjaer: Agents are offering us many players

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits he's discussed their market plans with the board.

Solskjaer penned a three-year deal with United yesterday.

“Of course, we've been discussing how to move the club forward," Solskjaer said. “That doesn't mean we've said x amount of money or x amount of players. We've sat down and discussed, but now it's easier to be clear about what we need to do because we will do some business this summer."

He went on: “Of course, the lure, if you want, of the Champions League is important. It might be important for some players but, to play for Man United, you know if you sign a contract for five years or four years, you're going to be playing in the Champions League.

"We are now in a great position to get into the Champions League, but that's not decided until 12 May probably. So, we need to get going before then with talks about players, with players, who's going to stay here, but I still say the same. I love working with these boys and the improvement has been here, so that's the short-term priority now.

"You know there's been so many players that have been written about, who we've been interested in, and there are so many players or players' agents that have been in touch with our administration [to say] that they want to come here. I'm sure when we decide what we have to do, hopefully, we'll get them by pre-season."
