Solskjaer says no talks yet on long-term Man Utd future

  • Paul Pogba has returned for form

Manchester United caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had admitted that the club has a transfer plan for the January transfer window, and he will offer his opinion on potential deals in meetings with executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward if there is "anything in the pipeline".

United were an eye-watering 11 points off the pace when Mourinho was sacked, but Herrera is not allowing his mind to wander from the here and now.

'And if Ole does remain, I suspect that will be a key attribute going forwards. I am not going to think about that.

"It is a team that has to be in the top four, that is very clear".

"(Newcastle) is not easy at all. "You need that fitness work because towards the end of March and April we'll need legs and I think we've got them". But we are in a good moment. "When you have players, like we have, with pace - Paul [Pogba], Anthony [Martial], Alexis [Sanchez], Romelu [Lukaku], [Marcus] Rashford - that's how we played with Andy [Cole] and Yorkie [Dwight Yorke] with Giggsy [Ryan Giggs] and Becks [David Beckham] down the sides".

Let us know in the comments. Even the ones that were on the bench.

Pogba has been making headlines on the pitch of late, as the World Cup victor has scored four goals and provided three assists since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over.




Sounding uncannily like his old insatiable United mentor Sir Alex Ferguson, the former striker reckoned he had already consigned to history the idea of having emulated Busby, who went on to win a fifth consecutive game at the infancy of his epic reign.

Sanchez, in particular, will be a player to keep an eye on, after returning from a long injury layoff earlier this week.

Manchester United have conceded 32 times in 21 games in the Premier League this season, which translates to the seventh worst defensive record in the English top flight.

But Howard says the United board can not ignore Solskjaer if the team's form continues in this vein.

"He's playing really, really well", Herrera said. "We're looking a little bit like we want to see the team [we want to see]".

"I wouldn't mention a darker side, but he would definitely get stuck in in training and put tackles in because he knew how competitive it was to stay in the team throughout the seasons".

While the interim manager also suggested Paul Pogba might not be fit for Saturday's FA Cup third round tie with Reading Solskjaer indicated that if any players are recruited in January this will be a product of a longterm strategy.
