Solskjaer sends message to Man Utd fans amid Sancho transfer frustration

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits he sympathises with the frustration among fans but says the club are working on signing new players before the window closes.

The Red devils were able to confirm the signing of Donny van de Beek this month, but Solskjaer has been frustrated in his attempts to land his main target Jadon Sancho.

Borussia Dortmund are unwilling to reduce their £100m valuation of the winger, a price United are not willing to pay.

According to ESPN, United have become agitated by the clamour for new signings and, speaking ahead of their first match of the new campaign against Villa, Solskjaer attempted to diffuse the dissatisfaction.

He said: ‘Fans will always want the best possible team to watch, the best possible Man United team and that’s the passion we want and the history we have.

‘We can look back 10 or 20 years and you look back at the great players we have and, for me, going forward, since Sir Alex left we’ve been averaging fifth.

‘Last season we got third which was a big step forward, everyone saw development, Bruno coming in, Harry being captain and showing leadership skills, Aaron did well.

‘We want to take a step forward and we can go into the new season with confidence but we’re looking to give the group a boot and we’re working on it.’

‘Of course, we’ve done some business with Donny, very happy delighted to get him in, an exceptional smashing lad that’ll give us something.

‘I can’t say anything about other clubs’ players, can’t speculate. We understand to get further we need to develop what we have and strengthen the team but let’s wait and see if we manage to bring anyone in.

‘I’ve been in dialogue with the club, we’re always discussing and let’s see if we can bring anyone in.’
