birminghammail: Manchester United will forever be looking to improve their squad, insists Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, amid intense transfer speculation concerning the club and Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish – and that means United’s current crop must keep getting better.
The Red Devils, aiming to pip Chelsea and Wolves to the fourth Champions League spot in the run-in, are expected to make one or two high profile purchases this summer, with England international Jadon Sancho also linked with a move to Old Trafford.
Grealish, hoping to lead boyhood club Villa away from relegation danger in the remaining six league matches, has attracted interest from England’s top clubs after leaving his mark in the Premier League this term.
As Solskjaer looks to lead United towards a position where they’re able to challenge for top flight titles once again, Grealish reportedly fits the bill.
And speaking about the summer transfer window, he insisted United will constantly search for players who can enhance their squad and take them closer to where they want to be.
“You need competition for places at Man United,” Solskjaer told the Independent. “If you think you’ve got a divine right to be playing every game and are doing so well that we’re not going to look for players to replace you, you’re in the wrong place.
“I’ve been here myself for so many years as a striker and Teddy Sheringham comes in, Dwight Yorke comes in, Ruud van Nistelrooy comes in, Wayne Rooney comes in.
“We’ve always got to look at improving, and if they don’t improve, we might have to look somewhere else to get better because we have to be better. We’re too far away from where we need to be and want to be.”
