Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirms no Manchester United players will leave this January

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that no Manchester United players will leave the club ahead of the January transfer window deadline.

Man United, who signed Alexis Sanchez last January, have not conducted any business over this month as they place emphasis on finding a new permanent manager.

Various reports this month have suggested Marouane Fellaini, Matteo Darmian, Andreas Pereira and Scott McTominay could all leave in some capacity.

But Solskjaer, speaking ahead of Man United’s meeting with Burnley at Old Trafford on Tuesday, confirmed nobody was leaving over the next couple of days.

“At the moment, I can see everyone staying at the club,” he said. “Because no deals have been done with anyone, I think, but then again there are still a few more days, but I’m not too involved in the negotiations.”

“So whatever happens happens but it’ll be good to get the window closed so we can just focus on the matters in the squad and improving the players in the squad still here.”

Nobody should have anticipated any kind of serious business from United in this window, with Jose Mourinho‘s sacking last month prompting the club to hit the reset button.

Solskjaer’s arrival gives United the chance to think long-term, as opposed to worrying about striking any potential deals this month. The club has to take its time over devising a new and improved transfer policy in the wake of Mourinho’s departure.
