Manchester United’s next signing will be an attacking player, according to their manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Ole sanctioned the sale of Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez to Inter Milan without bringing in replacements.
After poor results in recent games, the manager from Norway has said he is open to signing a new striker in January.
His words, “We let Alexis and Romelu go, you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to see that it’s a forward that next time we’re going to recruit — we’re looking for some creativity and goals,”
“If we had the right one, if it was there, we would have [signed someone],”
“It was time for Rom to go. He knows that. He didn’t want to be here. What is the point in having players that don’t want to be here?
“And it’s no point getting players in that you’re not 100% sure about.
“When you get players in, you need the right ones that are going to stay here for a longer period, and that’s the long-term thinking we have to show.
“I cannot think, ‘I need a player because this is my reputation.’ No, it’s the club.
“There were strikers, but they weren’t the ones we wanted. We couldn’t get the one we wanted.”
