Ole Gunnar Solskjaer claims Manchester United won’t splash out this summer – despite neighbours City moving 15 points clear in the Premier League with their 21st win in a row.
Solskjaer’s men visit Crystal Palace tonight and the Etihad on Sunday after City blitzed three late goals to beat Wolves 4-1.
Gabriel Jesus struck twice as Pep Guardiola’s leaders equalled Arsenal’s record of 19 straight Prem games without falling behind.
Guardiola told BT Sport: “We were fantastic. After 1-1 we suffered but we created lots of chances in the end.”
But although City look a class above, Solskjaer predicts United will spend modestly like ithe clubs in the next transfer window.
He said: “There’s going to be less transfers. The pandemic is definitely affecting everyone in football, the lack of finances.”
Meanwhile, European football chiefs have welcomed Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s offer to stage the whole of Euro 2020, not just the seven games Wembley is already due to host.
With Uefa planning to confirm the schedule by April 7, one source told The Sun: “It is great for us that England is so keen to play its part this summer.”
