Ole Gunnar Solskjaer unsure how coronavirus will impact transfers. “There’s still a lot of uncertainty and these three or four months.”
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits he is in the dark about how much money he will have to spend this summer as the club cope with the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
Arrivals are expected at Old Trafford this summer after another season without challenging for the title – which has ended up in the hands of rivals Liverpool – with Borussia Dortmund forward Sancho among their targets.
“I think the pandemic has hit everyone really hard,” said Solskjaer ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup quarter-final tie at Norwich.
“I still think we need to wait and see how things are panning out to know the real effects of the pandemic, to know what kind of financial state we are in.”
“You see some teams invest, some teams don’t. We’ll have to take a big look at things ourselves to see how hard we’ve been hit. I know the club has announced a few numbers before.”
“It’s not for me to say here now we are going to have X amount because I don’t really know. I don’t really know how hard we have been hit. We are a financially strong club, but we are also probably being hit more than anybody else.”
