    Solskjaer explains Manchester United’s January transfer window plans

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer does not expect Manchester United to have a busy January transfer window, though says the club would be prepared to act if a long-term target became available.

    The Red Devils have already been active this month, securing a £36million deal for Atalanta teenager Amad Diallo, and have utilised the winter window in the past – notably last year when they signed Bruno Fernandes from Sporting.

    But Solskjaer has suggested their incoming business may already be finished unless one of their top targets suddenly becomes available, though there could be plenty of outgoings.

    Asked if January will be an opportunistic window for United, Solskjaer said on Monday: ‘Well I think the signings that we made in the summer strengthened the squad really well.

    ‘Good signings, good characters, good players.

    ‘January is always difficult, but if something comes up that you think about the long-term and is a long-term target anyway, that’s another scenario.

    ‘But not many teams would like to lose their players in January!

    ‘So unlikely something will happen on the incomings, but there might be two or three going out.

    ‘They deserve to play more football for their own good and for their own careers.’

    United have previously been linked with Norwich star Max Aarons and centre-back Dayot Upamecano, but RB Leipzig have no intention of letting him leave in January, while a number of players could be offloaded.

    Timothy Fosu-Mensah is believed to be on the verge of joining Bayer Leverkusen, Marcos Rojo is expected to return to Argentina and Jesse Lingard has been linked with a move to Newcastle.
