Ole Gunnar Solskjaer remains coy on Manchester United transfer plans after seeing his side secure a place in next season’s Champions League group stage
Manchester United qualified for the UEFA Champions League after beating Leicester City 2-0 at the King Power Stadium on Sunday.
Bruno Fernandes converted a spot-kick in the 71st minute before Jesse Lingard sealed three points after a terrible blunder from Kasper Schmeichel eight minutes into the stoppage time.
After a tumultuous campaign, Manchester United finally got some clarity for the foreseeable future, as their impressive form in the second half of the season paid off eventually.
The Champions League qualification means the Red Devils will get some extra funds to invest in the upcoming transfer market, with Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho remaining the club’s top priority.

Although Solskjaer refused to hide his delight with the top-four finish, he avoided a dialogue about United’s plans for the summer transfer window, report Daily Mirror.
“Well, that’s another part of Champions League – financial gain, but that’s not in my head,” he said when asked whether the top-four finish will increase Manchester United’s summer activity.
“The club know what I feel we need, and we’re going to try to pursue it, and let’s see where we end up.”
In addition to Sancho, Solskjaer’s side have also been linked with the likes of Leicester’s Ben Chilwell, Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish, and Ajax’s Donny van de Beek.
