Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hints Manchester United may sign a new striker while insisting the club will “make some moves” in the summer transfer window.

Manchester United finished second-best in two of the five competitions they participated in as they lost out in the Premier League title race to rivals Manchester City and were beaten by Villarreal in the Europa League final.

Additions to the squad are expected after yet another trophyless season, with reinforcement needed in a handful of positions.

Jadon Sancho, Declan Rice, and Raphael Varane, among others, are linked with a move to Old Trafford as the Red Devils reportedly look to bring in a new right-winger, a defensive midfielder, and a center-back.

“We are second best, but too far behind to threaten those who won. We have to strengthen ourselves,” Solskjaer told Norwegian outlet TV2.

“Of course, something will happen in the transfer window. The world has become very different than 15-16 months ago, but we have to make some moves in the transfer window and also with the team.

“It is never possible to sit back. You are constantly looking for reinforcements. Football is dynamic, so unexpected things can happen such as injuries, illness or that someone wants to move.

“You have to take everything possible into consideration and reflection. I will never sit down and think that ‘now the team is the way I want it to be’, because you always see some other players or other teams doing something you want.”
