Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has come out to say that the club will need to be more realistic in the transfer window. He recently revealed that there is a clear budget constraint amid the coronavirus pandemic, and clubs must respect it.
According to him, the pandemic is definitely affecting everyone in football, and surely, the lack of income and finance is to be expected.
Ole added that he feels there’s going to be less and fewer transfers happening in the world of football with all the current changes happening in the world.
His words, “[The pandemic] is definitely affecting everyone in football. Of course the lack of income, the finances has affected everyone.”
“We have to be realistic and responsible in the way we do our business both on and off the pitch. There are improvements on the training ground, stadium – we have to look at the whole picture.”
“Where can we spend the money? And how much is there? It’s just the real world now. It has changed.”
“You can look at it different ways [with a] rebuild. We also have players in the academy that we now can maybe give opportunities.”
“All clubs in the world are going through the same situation so it’s no different for other clubs than for us. I think there’s just going to be less and less transfers happening in the world of football with all these changes.”
“We’re always looking to improve our squad, of course we are. I would never ever start to think the way you think about Edinson [Cavani] turning 35 next year because he’s just turned 34. You and I have different mentalities – that’s a completely different way of thinking.”
“And I always say with Mason [Greenwood], Anthony [Martial] and Edinson, when we can really get them firing that means we’re a very good team. But we’re always looking at better players, of course we are.”
