Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has assured he would not embark on a massive spending spree in the bid to rebuild the Manchester United squad.

Solskjaer,46, was rewarded with the managerial position on a permanent basis on a three-year deal after impressing as an interim manager winning 14 games out of 19 in the process.

But ahead of the next campaign, Solskjaer insists the club will be prudent in their spending and would try to get their deals sorted out in time.

“United is a club that has money, and that has to be spent in a reasonable way,” Solskjaer revealed via Sky.

“People who know me, know that I will use that in a good way.

Remembering the partnership between Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney

Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney played together five years at Manchester United, forming one of the greatest partnerships ever seen in English football.

“We have a plan with the club, they have scouted players for longer than I have been here, and we have players that we need to keep.

“We will not spend money just to spend money.”

Solskjaer said on Thursday he will “hopefully” conclude United’s transfer business before their pre-season tour gets underway in Australia in July.

The Norwegian will be aiming to start on a confident note when they face Watford on Saturday in their quest for a Champions League ticket next season.
