Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that the club may still sign a forward in the summer despite Cavani signing an extension.
Solskjaer believes he needs to strengthen his squad as they aim to mount a challenge with the teams ahead and has not ruled out the signing of a new striker.
He told Sky Sports in an interview: “We’re looking to strengthen the squad of course. There are many, many, many things you have to consider when you put a squad together.
“I’m not sayng if Eddie [Cavani] stays that means someone else in forward position won’t com in.”
Just on Monday Harry Kane was reported to have told Spurs of his desire to leave in the summer with Manchester United among the teams to have been reported to show interest in the England captain.
When quizzed about Kane’s availability, Solksjaer said: “I can’t talk about players at other teams. You know me well enough, I don’t think that’s very respectful of any team. There are loads of good players out there – I could say [Lionel] Messi and [Cristiano] Ronaldo are interesting, but I can’t talk about them, you know that.”
Solskjaer did not rule out the signing of a striker in the summer saying: “No, of course I can’t. Yes, Edinson signed but how many god strikers have we had at this club and I can’t say we’re not signing a striker.
Of course ot beacuse we’re building, we’re working towards a better squad. We’re top three for two years on the bounce but we are nowhere near where we want to be. So hopefully we end up wit a stronger squad when we start next season and be more consistent and challenge the ones in front of us.”
