Man Utd boss Solskjaer fired transfer warning because of Bruno Fernandes problem

Former Manchester United ace Paul Parker thinks Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will have an issue next season if he is fully reliant on Bruno Fernandes to lead the team to a substantial title challenge.

The Portugal international was pivotal to United finishing third in the Premier League table this campaign.

His £47million arrival from Sporting Lisbon in January transformed the club’s fortunes and helped them secure Champions League football.

Parker thinks the Red Devils have a strong enough squad to consistently finish in the top four of the Premier League.

But he warned that Solskjaer must dip into the transfer market to ease the burden on Fernandes.

“They have got to try and get backers,” Parker told talkSPORT. “It is not as easy as it was before.

“Things have got tougher because you can look at the influence money makes on the game now.

“They’re in a position where you are thinking that United can go on and do something.

“Eighteen months ago, two years ago everyone was talking four or five years and everyone had a right to say that. When they were bad they were seriously bad.

“Even when they are not playing that bad you still think they can go and achieve something out of a game.

“They have got a front three that when it’s right they can score goals. They are going to be capable of guaranteeing the Champions League but they will need signings.

“They have done great this season but there is no way they can start next season with the same players thinking they can do the same again.

“Fernandes will run out of steam early because he takes so much on himself.

“He wants to be on the ball, he tracks people back, they will be too dependent on him for every game if they carry on the way they are.”

United are chasing Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho but are reluctant to meet his £108million price tag.

Solskjaer also wanted to bring in a new centre-back, creative midfielder and striker.
