After the 5-2 win, Solskjaer approached Ake and had a conversation with the 25-year-old, where he appeared to say: "You need a bit of luck from your centre-backs. Just keep going."
However fans on social media purported Solskjaer actually said: "We need a left-footed centre-back, so keep going."
But asked at a press conference on Wednesday whether Ake was on United's radar, Solskjaer played down any interest in the player.
"I've got seven centre-backs, so I don't know where that's come from. We're fine," he said.
