Solskjaer: Man Utd to Spend Money in Good Way

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he will not spend money for the sake of it this summer.

Solskjaer was confirmed as permanent manager on Thursday, facing immediate questions about whether he will freshen up his squad for next season.

The Norwegian’s predecessor Jose Mourinho spent £360m on new players, recouping just £75m.

But Solksjaer said he would not be too hasty in the transfer market: “We will not spend money just to spend money.”

“United is a club that has money but people who know me, know I will use that in a good way,” he added to Norwegian TV.

Of Mourinho’s big-money purchases, only Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku have made a significant impact, with some – Alexis Sanchez being a prime example – barely making a positive contribution at all.
