Manchester United Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is confident his club will be able to exploit less well-off clubs in the transfer market when football returns.
With the COVID-19 pandemic halting football, the transfer window is likely to be delayed until the season is completed.
But Solskjaer confirmed that he and his team are using the downtime to plan ahead and evaluate which areas of the squad need strengthening.
“Football is going to get back to normality at one point, and it’s very important we’re ready when that happens” He told Sky Sports
“We want to be the best at everything, and of course now is a chance to spend more time, you discuss players, discuss plans, we’ve evaluated what we need, of course with the coaching staff we’ve looked at games, evaluated games, discussing on video calls like this” he said.
“Then, the market, who knows how the market is going to react to this? Who knows which clubs need to sell players? There might be just a situation there where you can exploit, and I know that we at Man United we are one of the biggest, and the biggest, financially well-off” added Solskjaer.
Football’s postponement may also allow the likes of Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford to fully recover from injuries, something Solskjaer says is a benefit if they can return at a similar or better level than other players.
