The bright days are back at Old Trafford, and the chants of “Ole Ole Ole” have been ringing around Old Trafford in a voice louder than ever before.
Manchester United have won five games on the trot in all competitions, giving Ole Gunnar Solskjaer a dream start to his interim manager role at the club.
There is a massive return of attacking intent and positivity when the players step out on the pitch, and the results have been proving the wonders freedom and belief can do.
However, despite life seeming perfect at the club right now, one can argue that Ole still has to face much tougher opponents in the near future, Tottenham being next, and that will be testing not only the talent in his management, but also the players and the depth of quality.
The club is in certain needs of reinforcement, and with the transfer window open, the rumours have started doing the rounds around the footballing world.
According to the Independent, Ed Woodward has identified two targets that he considers top priority, and is eager to bring them to the club.
In search of defensive strengthening, Inter’s Milan Skriniar and Napoli star Kalidou Koulibaly are the names that are being pursued to be brought to Manchester this month, as United prepare to face a tough second half of the season, including two UCL matches with PSG in February.
Woodward is assumed not to be after a quick fix, and is looking at long-term investments with this defensive pair. While the targets do seem a tough task for January, the Ole influence might just help change that.
