United’s transfer plans depend on Champions League qualification – Solskjaer

Just like every other year, Manchester United are being linked with expensive players left, right and centre ahead of the summer transfer window. The likes of Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho and Bayer Leverkusen attacking midfielder Kai Havertz mostly dominate the titles of speculative reports, but it’s been made clear by the two German clubs and the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic won’t affect their respective asking prices for the two players, despite some journalists claiming otherwise.

Meanwhile, the pandemic is certain to have an effect on the spending power of clubs looking to buy, and United are no exception. As relayed by the Mirror, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was forced to admit that their transfer plans this summer will depend very much on whether his team succeeds in their attempt to secure Champions League football. They are looking good in the top-four race at the moment, sitting fifth with just two points less than Leicester City in fourth, and their recent form in the Premier League has been fantastic.

Also, they are still in the running to win the Europa League, which would also provide them with a place in UEFA’s elite club competition next term.
