Manchester United have themselves a new manager, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to sit in the Old Trafford dugout for the season’s remainder.
The former striker certainly knows his way about the place, but this is definitely a gamble, although it’s one that United can afford to make given the fact that this campaign is practically over.
My first thought was that United would no longer make any signings in the January transfer window, but I could well be wrong if the latest report from The Times is to be believed.
They say that the treble-winning legend will have a say on potential January signings, with Edward Woodward ready to consult the former striker about options.
This is great. Solskjaer could possibly have money to spend despite only being in the role on a temporary basis, but at least he gets a chance at strenghtening the squad for the new manager.
Obviously, I don’t think he’ll be going out there and signing players who are approaching the end of their careers, but if the right youngster becomes available, then don’t be surprised to see United make their move.
