Ole Gunnar Solskjaer feels Manchester United must conduct “clever business” in the summer following their humbling exit in the Champions League.
In a previous era United were able to attract the world’s best talents but, despite their track record of spending big in recent years, that may no longer be the case.
“Yeah, that is the level we have to aspire to because that’s the level we have been,” Solskjaer told MUTV.
“We want to get there and we have to get there by hard work and attitude every single day, and of course some clever business we have to do and just keep on going.”
Manchester United’s board have decided to relax their rules around transfer recruitment and will give Solskjaer license to completely reshape the squad with at least five signings.
It has been widely reported that Solskjaer wants a number of new faces in the summer, and now ESPN report that United will back their new manager in a big way.
Although previous managers have been restricted to making, at most, just three big-money signings in a single window, that rule has been dispensed with for Solskjaer. Instead, he will be allowed to bring in upwards of five marquee signings across every area of the pitch as he plans an ambitious overhaul of the playing staff.
Solskjaer wants a new centre-back, right-back, central midfielder and attacking reinforcements, with the ring wing position a problem area for some time now.
