Solskjaer: Man Utd form helping transfer market work

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes their run of form can help them in the transfer market.

United suffered a setback in January when teenage striker Erling Haaland opted for Borussia Dortmund over Old Trafford.

But since then, Solskjaer's revamped side have gone on a 17-game unbeaten run with new signing Bruno Fernandes and academy prodigy Mason Greenwood earning rave reviews.

"I think Man United is attractive for any young player out there with ambition," said the manager ahead of Monday's home game against Southampton.

"Results are coming and performances are coming. When you are at Man United, you've got to attack quickly and have some youth players in there."

The Norwegian is also pleased United's form has cheered up legendary former manager Sir Alex Ferguson during lockdown.

"He's watching the games. He's watching everything and there have been a couple of texts of course," said Solskjaer.
