Peter Schmeichel believes Solskjaer wanted to offload more players this summer

    Manchester United legendary shot-stopper Peter Schmeichel insists Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wanted more players to leave the club during the summer

    Ander Herrera and Antonio Valencia both said goodbye to the Red Devils after seeing their contract run out, while the out-of-sorts forward Alexis Sanchez joined the Serie A giants Inter Milan on a season-long loan.

    The two more players left Old Trafford to move to Italy, with Chris Smalling going to AS Roma on a temporary basis, while Romelu Lukaku linked up with Alexis at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.

    Meanwhile, Solskjaer spent a small fortune to lure Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, and Daniel James to the Theatre of Dreams.

    According to Schmeichel, the Norwegian manager failed to conclude the business in the summer the way he wanted, especially in terms of the outgoings.

    “He definitely didn’t get the transfer window done in the way that he wanted to,” the Dane told Premier League Productions, as reported by the Daily Express.

    “Not so much the players coming in because he brought some really good players in.

    “I think he wanted a couple more players leaving, which also has an effect on his team.”

    Heavily linked with a move away from United during the summer, Paul Pogba has eventually begrudgingly stayed at the club despite Real Madrid and Juventus both tried to snap him up.
