Never in a million years did Man Utd fans believe they’d ever be rid of Ashley Young, to name but a few. But once more, Solskjaer’s reign has proved productive.
Ashley Young secured a much-hoped move to Inter Milan, with fans revealing their joy at finally being freed of the full-back, who seems to have mostly gotten on their bad side.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has done the unexpected, and finally Man Utd seem to be stringing in a team worthy to challenge for a title, especially with a deal for Bruno Fernandes expected to be completed in time.
On Solskjaer’s watch, Romelu Lukaku left for inter after a failed try to fit into the system and is now obviously flourishing at the San Siro. Alexis Sanchez would follow suit and now Ashley Young.
Chris Smalling is another name, the manager is hoping to make his move to Roma permanent, amongst others.
Its been a massive job so far clearing the mess over the past few years of trial and error by other managers, and now more than ever Man Utd need to rally behind their manager and help get the job done.
The red devils are on the right path sticking with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer so far. But a few moves needs to be done to finish the work he has started.
For one, there are a couple of other names who apparently are not suited to the club, including the likes of Phil Jones, Nemanja Matic, Jesse Lingard and to some point Andreas Pereira.
Elsewhere, Solskjaer needs to be backed for more squad depth, with injury a major obstacle as already seen this season.
Paul Pogba has been injured all season, with Mctominay joining the Frenchman on the sidelines to leave the club bare in midfield and Fred having to soak the pressure until they return.
Should Bruno Fernandes arrive, then the story of creativity could be pushed down the list, but it won’t be such a bad idea to have a backup, especially if Paul Pogba decides to depart the club in the summer.
Ole as well has a job to do in the Man United defensive line. Aaron Wan-Bissaka has been fantastic, and so has Brandon Williams, with Luke Shaw not particularly looking the part.
The manager however needs to expand his options, especially in the case of the full-backs. With AWB and Brandon very much unlikely to carry the team for a full season without running low or at least free of injury.
Going forward, the red devils have seen a massive improvement with Marcus Rashford, Daniel James, Anthony Martial, and Mason Greenwood coming up with the required goods.
However, there are no reasonable second options to the manager, and frankly, Martial can’t be trusted to lead the lines, and so a serious competition is needed to bring the best out of the Frenchman.
In any case, the arrival of Fernandes is bound to see a change for the better. With Solskjaer proving to really have a plan, and just maybe that’s enough to see Manchester United rise from the dead to once more sit at the Apex of club football.
