Manchester United line up £45m bid for Serie A defender

Manchester United line up £45m bid for Serie A defender

It was Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, telling him to get out of the manager's seat and find another.

Manchester United are reportedly planning to consult Ole Gunnar Solskjaer when deciding on the future of a number of top players.

The Norwegian has already revealed that he will be involved in talks over any January transfer targets, and The Mirror reports that he will also now help decide the futures of players soon to be out of contract.

Reading dominated possession and had more shots, but they weren't as clinical as United even with the home side far from their best.

"Hopefully, he'll be okay for next weekend", Solskjaer said.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took responsibility for Manchester United's lacklustre display against Reading after admitting his team selection had made the task more hard.

"It has to start with the way we play because results you can not control", he said. He came on after 62 minutes to replace Juan Mata and overall he did well.

The Dutch youngster told MUTV: "I have got to keep my feet on the ground and keep working hard, if my chances come I have just got to take them". When you have players like we have, that's how we played with Andy (Cole), (Dwight) Yorkey, (Ryan) Giggsy and Becks (David Beckham) down the sides. We didn't have too much time to work.

Luke Shaw: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer bringing buzz to Manchester United
The club are now within touching distance of fifth place Arsenal , with fixtures against Reading in the FA Cup , Spurs Brighton and Burnley to come.

"But we got the goals and managed to get through".

Whereas his old friend is all smiles after making the strongest start of any United manager since Sir Matt Busby, with four wins from his first four games in charge, O'Shea's fortunes have waned.

Solskjaer is focusing on FA Cup progress against Reading, who are second from bottom of the Championship.

Lukaku has his scoring touch back.

Bournemouth pulled a goal back through Marc Pugh's fine effort from 20 yards out but Brighton restored their two-goal lead in the 64th minute when Florin Andone headed in from the Seagulls' first corner of the game.

However, while Fred was offside, Mata had been tripped by Omar Richards just prior to that, allowing the playmaker to score from the spot, the first time he had netted in the cup since against Crystal Palace in the 2016 final.

United will travel to Dubai for warm-weather training after Saturday's game, and Solskjaer warned it will not be a holiday.
