WATCH: Man Utd boss Solskjaer gives Ake rev- (or tap?) up

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer gave Bournemouth defender Nathan Ake a rev-up after Saturday's thumping win.

Solskjaer sought him out at Old Trafford on Saturday and offered a word of encouragement.

BT Sport caught the conversation as part of their match coverage.

The Mirror claims despite their subtitles claiming Solskjaer saying "you need a bit of luck with your centre-backs, keep going" ( a weird thing to say, no?), the Norwegian appeared to tell Ake: "We need a left-footed centre-back, so keep going".

United likely won't be alone should they make a move, with former club Chelsea and Manchester City both having kept tabs on Ake over the past 18 months.
