Manchester United boss speaks on January transfer plans

Ole says United won't spend in January

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has stated that the club are unlikely to spend when the transfer window reopens in just over a month's time.

The Red Devils have been heavily fancied to recruit a new striker in the New Year and the likes of Mario Mandzukic, Moussa Dembele and Erling Haaland have been linked in recent weeks.

However, speaking in a press conference, Solskjaer has said that it is unlikely that the club will conduct any transfer business at the turn of the year and he will probably depend on the players returning from injury setbacks.

"Probably not because that is the thing - it is in January. Maybe one or two could be a loan deal but that is not a big money thing, it is just to help the team. We are getting players back and we are looking at what can be available for us," he said via Goal.com.

The Mancunian giants have struggled to register regular wins in the Premier League this term and they recently played out a 3-3 draw against Sheffield United on the road.

United managed to make a terrific comeback from two goals down to 3-2 but they unfortunately failed to come up with the victory following a late strike from Oliver McBurnie.
