Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that the uncertainty with regards to the start of next season is affecting the club’s plans for next season.

Speaking about Man United’s summer transfer plans, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told the media during the pre-match press conference before the Southampton game: “There is quite a lot of planning going on. When do we start the league?

“That is obviously determined by how far we go in Europe, you can’t really decide on the training programme. There are so many small decisions, transfers are out of our hands as well.

“If the team is going well, what do we need? What don’t we need? That’s the way we’re working and you’ve got to plan for different scenarios. Uncertainty of dates, how much holiday, what will next season look like? It’s a little bit up in the air.”

The Norwegian also dismissed fears that our inability to qualify for the UEFA Champions League will have a significant impact on the club.

Meanwhile, we still remain in the race for a top-four finish and next up for us is a strip to St. Mary’s to face Southampton.
