Man Utd manager Solskjaer: There was more money to spend

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says they had money to make more signings this summer.

United added just three new players this summer, with Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James joining for a total of £145m.

Asked if they had the resources to further add to their squad, Solskjaer said: "There is money available when there are the right players available.

"It is not about a quick fix, it is about a longer rebuild. It is not time to change that attitude when you haven't got the correct answers from the players you wanted.

"When the transfer window closed there was a feeling of relief. I am delighted with the three that we have signed."
