Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has some words to spit about an impending rumoured move for Ashley Young to Serie A giants, Inter Milan.
The United skipper has been strongly linked with a move to Antonio Conte’s side but United boss is hopeful he can keep his squad intact this month.
The Norwegian gaffer is uncomfortable with the thought of letting players leave Old Trafford following rumours that the Nerazzuris ade interested in the veteran defender.
Manchester United were humiliated 3-1 by their bitter city rivals, Manchester City in the first leg of their Carabao Cup tie, with the Red devils outclassed for most parts of the game.
Bernardo Silva and Riyad Mahrez put United on the front foot before an own goal by Andreas Perreira put United in a difficult position and close to impossible to recover.
The humiliating defeat highlighted the loopholes in the squad with the likes of Andreas Perreira, Jesse Lingard, Phil Jones and Victor Lindelof coming under heavy criticisms for their dismal performances.
Soon after the game, reports emerged that Inter Milan are interested in Young who have been used as an alternative for fullback options.
Despite Young being out of contract by the summer, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer seems to be reluctant to let Young leave on free transfer.
“Tonight’s not the time to talk about players leaving, because we need the players we have in the squad and we’ve got a few months left of this season,” Solskjaer told reporters.
“You’ve got to ask Ash, to be fair. For me, it’s about focusing on the next game and tonight [City].”
Manchester United have been linked to bringing in reinforcements in the winter transfer window with a number of high profile players tipped to switch to Old Trafford.
Solskjaer also talked about the possibility of bringing people into the squad in the January transfer window. The Norwegian gaffer added:
“I’ve got the backing to do something, but if it isn’t the right thing we won’t do anything.”
