Solskjaer’s signings warning may worry Hammers

Manchester United Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has fired out a warning which may be untimely in the extreme but gives a sign of things which may come to pass if his ‘threat’ is carried out.

Quite why he needed to issue such a stark assessment of Manchester United’s likely attitude to life at this point in the global health scare only he will know but once again it demonstrates the lack of sentiment involved in this game at the highest level.

For the Manchester United boss has made it clear that he reckons he can take advantage of the cash mayhem that has hit the game, much like you can cash in on a Tipico bonus code, by snapping up some of the game’s brightest stars on the cheap.

Over the past few months he has of course United have been linked with the likes of Jadon Sancho, Declan Rice, Issa Diop and Jack Grealish and talking to Sky Sports Solskjaer appears to be suggesting the crisis is one one of which United can ultimately take advantage.

He said:  ‘Football is going to get back to normality at one point, and it’s very important we’re ready when that happens.

‘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.

‘Then, the market, 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 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.’

  1. Economics, supply and demand and cashflow always exist. We will have our own plans and our board will have its own red lines. Perhaps its time to get behind the board and stop sniping just for once.

  2. So he thinks man utd will come out if this unharmed. He may find out differently. Arrogance appears to be rearing its head. We will see.

  3. You don’t think we will be trying to get players on the cheap once the window opens? Of course we will, it’s a business and they will be looking for whatever bargains can be found.

  4. Shows a lack of respect and class to talk about such things at this time. In Spain deaths are still rising yet his predecessor Mourinho sees fit to put his players and the general public needlessly at risk by training in a park foregoing Government instructions about social distancing to try to take advantage of adverse conditions for when the season restarts… I read a quote that said the risks posed by corona virus are affected by two factors;
    1. The denseness of the population
    2. The denseness of the population

    Some of those in football could do well to understand that quote because their arrogance shouldn’t be excused by their density.

  5. Agree with the timing comment. In my opinion poor timing. Also his comments will i think apply to both sides of the coin as they say.
