Solskjaer lifts lid on Man Utd January plans
Nov. 06, 2019
Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer aims to add to his squad during the January market.
United had originally earmarked a midfield addition in the winter transfer window, but their goalscoring struggles has convinced Solskjaer to target an attacking recruit.
"The priority now is to get players fit and get through to the next round," Solskjaer said ahead of their Europa League tie with Partizan Belgrade. "Transfers, we always look at the long-term [to] look at players.
"It might be none, might be one, might be two in January, but it's always the summer window that's the big one and you can't do too many good deals in January."
Scott McTominay has lined up in all 11 league games and Solskjaer was coy when asked whether his role would change when Pogba returns to the side.
"Let's see when he gets back and see how we'll get to pick the teams." Solskjaer added. "But Scott'y's been one of our most important and one of our most consistent players this season.
"He's taken strides, it's the first season he's been playing regularly, which is massive for a young kid to play week in and week out, and we've seen an improvement in him."
