Solskjaer promises to be prudent in spending

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.
