Solskjaer says Man Utd will be ruthless in summer market

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says they'll be ruthless in this summer's transfer window.

FIFA have confirmed the market will not run as usual this summer due to the coronavirus crisis.

Solskjaer admits that United chiefs - who are refusing to furlough staff - are pressing ahead with plans to ensure they are ready to get what's needed in order to improve.

"Football is going to get back to normality at one point, and it's very important we're ready when that happens," Solskjaer told Sky Sports.

"We want to be the best at everything, and of course now is a chance to spend more time, you discuss players, discuss plans, we've evaluated what we need, of course with the coaching staff we've looked at games, evaluated games, discussing on video calls like this.

"Who knows how the market is going to react to this? Who knows which clubs need to sell players?

"There might be just a situation there where you can exploit, and I know that we at Man United we are one of the biggest, and the biggest, financially well-off.

"I'm sure we are capable, when we get back to normality, that we can do the business that we want to.

“We are planning, we are discussing what we have to do, what we can do, and I have to say the club has been very good so far."
