Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits that Man Utd “might have to spend some money” if they are to challenge Liverpool and Manchester City for the Premier League title next campaign.

The Red Devils are currently 17 points off second-placed Man City and a huge 37 points off Premier League leaders Liverpool.

Man Utd have shown some improvements since the turn of the year and are currently on a 12-match unbeaten run following their 1-1 draw against Tottenham in their first match back. They are currently 8/11 in the odds on Premier League to travel to Brighton and take home the three points.

“We’ve developed over the season and I think now we had a spell of 11 unbeaten,” Solskjaer said ahead of their clash with Sheffield United on Wednesday night.

“But then you add Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford to that and you’re thinking ‘yeah, we’re not too far away’ and I’m very happy with the squad.

“If there are any good deals to be made and players who can make us better, of course, we might have to spend some money on that. But the squad is great to work with and it’s moving in the right direction.

“We’re still not where we want to be, close enough to challenge for the Premier League trophy but we take one step at a time.

“Obviously City and Liverpool the last couple of seasons have put the standard where it should be to win the league.

“Hopefully now we can challenge for the Europa League, FA Cup this season, top four and then let’s see how much we can invest for next season.”
