Solskjaer has warning for 50-goal trio as he fails to rule out striker deal for Manchester United
Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has not ruled out signing another striker to bring in competition for Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood.
Manchester United made the mistake last summer by letting Romelu Lukaku leave the club and not bring in an adequate replacement to lead the attack this season.
Martial and Rashford have both stepped up since the Belgian’s departure, having had their best goal-scoring seasons with 19 goals each in all competitions, while Greenwood has contributed 12 himself, which has kept United in the running for a top four spot.
However, their good form has not deterred Solskjaer from wanting to add another striker to his squad in the summer, and has warned the trio that a new forward could be signed in the transfer window
“You need competition for places at Manchester United,” Solskjaer warned. “If you think you’ve got a divine right to be playing every game and are doing so well that we’re not going to look for players to replace you, you’re in the wrong place.
“I’ve been here myself for so many years as a striker and Teddy Sheringham comes in, Dwight Yorke comes in, Ruud van Nistelrooy comes in, Wayne Rooney comes in.
“We’ve always got to look at improving, and if they don’t improve, we might have to look somewhere else to get better because we have to be better. We’re too far away from where we need to be and want to be.”
Look, the trio have been brilliant this season, but they are not out-and-out strikers that can lead the attack, so Manchester United do need to sign a big time striker that can add some serious goals to the attack.
They will need help if United want to be challenging for titles nest season.
