Solskjaer Admits Man Utd Chasing One or Two Additions in January After Pogba Setback

Manchester United are targeting one or two faces in January, revealed by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

United top four hopes were dashed on Wednesday night following a 2-0 defeat to Arsenal and attention quickly turned to the transfer business on the first day of the January window.

Injuries are becoming a major issue for United, specifically in central midfield, and while Solskjaer remain coy on targets, he admitted that the club are on the hunt for a couple of additions this month.

According to the coach, ‘We are building towards something and it just depends on what we think is right for us will be available

Nemanja Matic and Fred played together in the centre of the park against Arsenal and there is an acknowledgement that any further injuries would expose the lack of depth in that position.

Again, Scott Mac Tominay will be out for two months after picking up an injury in the recent win over Newcastle United and £89million man Paul Pogba is back on the sidelines already having only recently returned to the side.

Solskjaer confirmed after the defeat that Pogba has been told by his people to have surgery on his ankle, ruling him out for a number of weeks, and so the pair’s long term absence may put United into action in this transfer window.

This defeat is United’s sixth campaign in the Premier League already and they are five points lesser than Chelsea who sit fourth, after their 1-1 draw with Brighton.
