Manchester United must invest wisely in transfer market - Solskjaer

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: it will be a miracle if Manchester United challenge for the title next season

Jesse Lingard insists Manchester United will "come back stronger" after a "disappointing" campaign ended with a 2-0 home defeat to Cardiff.

Solskjaer's mandate of returning the club to the top of the English game looks a herculean one but the Norwegian is determined to make it happen.

"Next season we have to close that gap, if we manage to get to February or March and still be close that's fantastic".

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer enjoyed a prolonged bounce after taking over the reins from Jose Mourinho in December, winning 14 of his first 17 games in all competitions.

The Spain worldwide has 189 appearances for United, and 20 goals, and is widely reported to be going to Paris Saint-Germain.

A week after their failure to qualify for the Champions League was confirmed, Solskjaer rounded off the season with a heavy dose of realism.

Asked about a move for James on Friday morning, Solskjaer said: "I can't comment on every single individual".

"It's not like a threat, but whoever is not ready on July 1 will probably stay here and not travel with us because we only want players we can use over there". "That's the base of this club, the foundation is so great, we'll come back again".

The selection of a defender as Manchester United's best player in a season in which they conceded more league goals than in any campaign since 1978-79 does seem somewhat of a paradox.

"The feeling in the end is very bitter", the out-of-contract Spanish midfielder said in his weekly blog on his website.

United are 29 points behind City and 28 behind Liverpool.

"Sir Alex Ferguson's former" on a three-year contract.

Solskjaer's squad needs a radical overhaul after years of poor spending and drift.

"But if not, this summer [transfer window] will also be about players who can last here for many years".

"There are many players". We hope to give him a nice send-off.

Solskjaer, who savoured six title successes in his playing days, told reporters: "I think I've been quite honest that challenging for the title next year would be a miraculous season because we're so far behind at the moment points wise".

United are scheduled to visit Australia, Singapore and China for four matches in July, although their schedule could be disrupted if they are forced to start in the second qualifying round of next season's Europa League.
