Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says that players looking to sign for the club know that the club will eventually play in the Champions League.
According to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Manchester United will be able to buy good players this summer despite not offering Champions League football. The Red Devils have so far completed only one signing. Daniel James signed from Swansea City.
Moves for the likes of Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Bruno Fernandes are still on the cards but things are expected to move forward soon.
And Solskjaer says that United will get their desired targets even though Champions League is in the offing.
While speaking to Daily Star, Solskjaer said that players are aware that the club is eventually going to play in Europe’s biggest competition.
“Of course, the lure, if you want, of the Champions League is important,” he said.
“It might be important for some players but, to play for Man United, you know if you sign a contract for five years or four years, you’re going to be playing in the Champions League.”
He added: “This summer will also be about players who can last here for many years.
“I don’t think we’ve ever been a ready-made club – [Cristiano] Ronaldo was not ready made, [Wayne] Rooney was not ready made.”
“Loads of players have come here and developed into the top superstars they’ve become.
“It’s always going to be the model here that we develop players because we have the best staff, the best environment, the best supporters.”
Clearly, Solskjaer is confident that the club can attract the best players. However, the Norwegian tactician should be taking note of players wanting to leave. Paul Pogba is already craving a move to Juventus while Romelu Lukaku wants to join Internazionale.
Regardless, the club is expected to sign crucial elements for the team this summer.
