Solskjaer refuses to rule out signing a new striker at Manchester United
This update comes just days after the club secured the future of Edinson Cavani for another year. The Uruguayan showed off just why with a sublimely taken goal against Fulham yesterday night.
With the transfer window coming up, United will need to strengthen their hand going into next season. With Harry Kane making himself available, a new world of opportunities could now be within reach.
“Of course I can’t [rule out signing a striker].”
While Cavani has shown off his worth, the same cannot be said of Anthony Martial. The Frenchman has endured a difficult season, far removed from the success he enjoyed last time around.
Going into a new campaign with just these two players would be a risky proposition. After all, Cavani is in the final years of his career and cannot be expected to start week in, week out.
“I can’t say we’re not signing a striker, of course not. Because we’re building towards a better squad, we’re top three two years on the bounce but not where we want to be.”
Solskjaer understands he needs a stronger squad to challenge next season. Despite our progress, it has been evident that the team lacks quality and strength ind epth in certain areas.
A dignified silence?
The United boss refused to be drawn into any discussions regarding Kane. Given that he still remains a Tottenham Hotspur player, one can understand the Norwegian’s take on the subject.
“I can’t comment on other teams’ players and what’s being speculated and said.”
The English skipper is one of the finest strikers in world football and United will find few players better than him to add to their roster. He will not come cheap and it remains to be seen what we can do.
