Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists the club will not drastically alter plans for the summer should United’s excellent recent form fail to yield a return to the Champions League.

“The club wouldn’t panic or go crazy with plans we’ve already talked about for years to come,” the United boss said at his pre-match press conference.

“But some short-term decisions will be easier to make if you get the Champions League.

“There is a lot of uncertainty of dates. There is quite a lot of planning going on but when we start the league is determined by how far we go in Europe, so you can’t decide on the training programme.

“Transfers are out of our hands as well. If the team is going well, what do we need You’ve got to plan for a lot of different scenarios but it is a little bit up in the air at the moment.”
