Solskjaer was cheekily asked by Norwegian TV channel Viaplay about the chances he will sign someone from Dortmund, he replied with a grin: ‘I’m good at math, but I can’t answer that question. There are many good footballers on many teams.’

United legend Solskjaer was further quizzed about his transfer plans and revealed he has held positive conversations with Ed Woodward.

‘If something is in front of us screaming that it’s sensible, both from a sporting and a financial perspective — I know we’re going to try, but you can’t make any promises,’ Solskjaer said.

‘We’ve [him & the owners] had a good dialogue the entire time, and we’ve had a plan for it since I signed in March [2019].

‘The three months of lockdown and for how long we’ll have to play in front of empty stands, if we’ll play in the Champions League next season. There are many things like that which will be factors in terms of what we can do when the season is over.’
