Solskjaer responds to Dortmund transfer question as Manchester United keen on Jadon Sancho
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was mischievously asked what his chances of signing the likes of Jadon Sancho from Dortmund, by mate Jan Aage Fjortoft, now a presenter for Viasport.
Sancho has developed into one of the best wingers in the game since his move to the Bundesliga, put his stunning performances has also meant that the likes of Manchester United are interested in a possible deal.
Dortmund do not want to sell and it seems that Sancho will only leave if he is forced, especially as the German side know that they will be able to get over the £100 million mark when the transfer window opens up.
But amid all the speculation, Solskjaer was mischievously asked what his chances of signing players from Dortmund: “Ha ha. I’m good at math, but I can’t answer that question, Jan Aage,” Solskjaer replied. “There are many good footballers on many teams.”
“I think it’ll be a calm transfer window or a sightly different kind of window.
“I think a lot of clubs will have to be careful not to spend too much money. You might still not know how much you’ve lost financially during this pandemic and what’s gone on lately.
“We’re quite relaxed. I am very happy with the squad I have. I think it looks better and better. And then there is something in front of us screaming that it’s sensible – both from a sporting and a financial perspective. So I know we’re going to try but you can’t make any promises.”
