Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had shed light on Manchester United’s transfer plans for January.

Despite the drastic rise in the quality of football being played at the Old Trafford outfit under the new interim boss, it is of no doubt that the squad still needs reinforcements in order to compete with the top teams.

Their defence, in particular, has been a problematic area since the start of the season. Former manager Jose Mourinho was adamant on bringing in new centre-backs, with the club linked with numerous world-class candidates ever since.

There has been persistent speculation surrounding Manchester United‘s potential targets for the winter transfer window as well, although no deal looks anywhere near completion at the moment.

Amid the uncertainty, Solskjaer has opened up about the manner in which the Red Devils are set to approach the ongoing window.

“The club’s probably had a plan. You don’t just plan the next day and next month, I’m sure they’ve got plans, but this transfer window has probably been planned since the summer and the year before,” Ole revealed.

“The structure is phenomenal, so I’m sure they’ve got their targets. I’m here to voice my opinion on that and I’m sure we’ll sit down, me and Ed, if they’ve got anything in the pipeline.

“I’m here to work with the ones I’ve got, they’ve all performed and as long as they perform they should get a chance but that’s my job to improve players and individuals.”

No new signings until the summer, then?
