Gunnar Solskjaer urged the board not to spend big money on a big name signing.

Gunnar SolskjaerUnited have splashed the cashed since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013 with Angel Di Maria, Radamel Falcao, Alexis Sanchez and Paul Pogba joining for large fees.
But Solskjaer says: “It is not about ‘x’ amount of players.
“It has to be the right one and one who fits. The personality has to fit with the team.
“It is not just buy a superstar and that will fix things and suddenly we go from challenging to being top four and be champions.
“If you look at the players, the age of them, they’re young and they’ve got plenty of development in them.
“We also need some experienced players to stay and step up and really become the leaders.
“Paul [Pogba] now is, Jesse – they’re at that age where we expect them to take that responsibility and not just be a young boy that floats around.”
