Ole Gunnar Solskjaer promises to put dressing room harmony before transfer targets

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has reportedly vowed to prioritise the Red’s dressing room atmosphere even if it means missing out on top transfer targets.

According to a report from ESPN, Solskjaer has told United’s vice-executive chairman Ed Woodward that he will not allow a repeat of the infamous Alexis Sanchez saga to happen again.

Sanchez, 31, joined United from Premier League rivals Arsenal in 2018 in a transfer which saw Armenian midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan go the other way.

The famous transfer has been widely regarded as the worst Premier League transfer of-all-time after both players failed to impress during their times with their new clubs. Consequently, both players have since moved on from the clubs they signed for in 2018 with Mkhitaryan at AS Roma and Sanchez at Inter Milan.

ESPN’s report claims that Solskjaer faced a tough battle behind closed doors when he arrived at Old Trafford after Sanchez’s wage demands which were understood to be within the region of £560,000-per week including bonuses upset other team members.

Sanchez’s wages and his sub-par on-field performances reportedly caused other members of the United side to demand higher wages which became a particular problem when the club tried to negotiate keeper David De Gea’s new deal.

The report goes onto claim that former midfielder Ander Herrera’s departure came in light of wage demands failing to be met after Sanchez’s wages created an unrealistic ceiling.

It is understood that manager Solskjaer has vowed to avoid the same mistake which was the main reason the Reds were able to tie down former Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek so quickly.

According to the report, van de Beek had a phone call with Solskjaer prior to signing and agreed to fit in with the club’s wage structure.

It is claimed that the Norwegian manager will sacrifice top transfer targets if their wage demands risk deviating from the club’s new structure.

    Solskjaer is nothing other than a Glazer yes man, who let’s these American parasites and Woodward dictate to him what happens at United, Solskjaer has proved he is a lower, losing all 3 semi finals, United need to get in a proven world class striker who will score 20+ goals a season, had United still had Lukaku they would have won all 3 of those semi finals, if Solskjaer is so dumb that he doesn’t realise that we have a massive problem up front which we all saw, the last 2 matches they had 40+ shots on goal and only scored 2 penalties, had Lukaku at least had been sold and replaced we would have possibly won some of those semi finals, but the fact is that if we DONT have a world class striker, once again we will massively suffer, neither Rashford or Martial are central attackers and Igallo is seriously not good enough to rely on, and Greenwood can’t play as a central arracker every single game of the up coming season which includes the Champions league, but we know that we are just a cash cow to the Glazer parasites who own the club, and when we want a player, Joel Glazer now has the final say, yet another brain dead idiot who knows nothing about football and footballers, the Glazers only care about United getting in the Champions league and high enough in the premier league to get into the Champions league, the fact is that if we don’t spend big and offload the dead wood at United, we run a massive risk of not even finishing in the top 4 next season when everyone else is strengthening their squads, every season we have the same thing, the Glazers have NEVER put 1 penny into United but have stolen over a massive $1billion from the club since they have owned United. Its time that United finally get rid of the Glazer parasites, Woodward and Solskjaer who showed after the semi finals that he does NOT have the attitude to be a winner at United.
