Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said he is “confident” that Manchester United will get the right players in this summer to make them a force next campaign.
Jose Mourinho cut a frustrated figure in pre-season and before his sacking in December with reports he fell out with Ed Woodward over the club’s failure to bring in a centre-back.
When asked whether he is confident United won’t suffer another summer of frustration in the transfer market, Solskjaer said: “Yeah because I’ve been speaking to the club, we know that we have to be realistic and have a job to be done there’s no quick fix.
“It’s not like buy seven players and we’re in the right shape, we have to take step by step and there’ll be signings made but also has to be thoughts about players, sit down, have a pre-season.
“I can’t wait for it to come, there’ll be some additions, the players have got to come back and know what is expected of them take ownership of that while on holiday.
“And it will be great to see who’s coming back and as I said first of all this focus has to be on Everton.”
He added: “I don’t know if all these critics know what’s happening, we’ve got scouts scouring the planet for good footballers and we’ll sign players we think is the right fit.
“Personality wise, price wise, quality wise and can you have longevity at this club and I’m confident we’ll get the players.”
