Manchester United caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits he knows what he his side would look like two years from now.
The Norwegian is the current favorite to land the United job on a permanent basis after his extraordinary start to his caretaker role at Old Trafford.
Despite the uncertainty over the club’s next manager, United have consulted Solskjaer over their transfer plans and the 45-year-old has given his input on where the squad needs strengthening.
Solskjaer has revealed that he’s explained to Ed Woodward what his vision for United is and what the team would look like in 2020.
Every day I feel that I do help the club, do put a little bit of my stamp on it,’ said Solskjaer. ‘But decisions, sometimes of players’ futures are not down to me, either.
It’s the players, do they want to stay, do they want to move on, do they want something else, but we have a vision and a picture of how we want to look in a few years.
Of course we have to think long-term and also short-term ‘I’ve got a picture of what this Man United team should look in a couple of years, I don’t know if it’s with me, but I put my views to Ed and the club.
United have identified Dortmund star Jadon Sancho as a transfer target after watching the England forward closely since his decision to leave Manchester City.
