Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has assured that Manchester United are working on signing players in January.

The Red Devils have been linked with Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes ever since the summer. But, as was the case before the start of the season, Man United appear to have made no progress to land the 25-year old.

Manchester United have been harshly criticized in recent weeks for their lack of a proper structure in transfers with much of the blame going to the club’s hierarchy.

But manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has insisted that the club is working with a plan in mind. He recalled Jurgen Klopp’s first season at Liverpool and reminded that they too will need time to rebuild the team.

“We do have a way of doing things,” he said as per the Guardian.

“You can see other teams have done well. Jurgen [Klopp] spent four years building his team and they’re doing well. It’s not going to be a quick fix.

“It’s not going to be eight players in or 10 players in in one transfer window. We’ve had one proper transfer window, in the summer, because the Januarys are difficult, but we are still trying to do something now.”
